It's World Book Night! Now in its 3rd year, thousands of volunteers will spread out across America today and tonight (it's William Shakespeare's birthday!) to hand out specially printed copies of free books, donated by publishers. They will be focusing on areas where there are at-risk readers, or low-literacy or low-reading populations. The sign-ups to be a World Book Night Giver are free to anyone, but you do need to sign up months ahead of time so publishers know how many books to print.

If you are considering signing up for next year, put yourself on the World Book Night newsletter, here.

You don't have to have read the novel to attend. Come hear Chris talk about this important topic, and about his many other novels as well. Open to all fans of Chris Bohjalian and students of history!
Chris Bohjalian's excellent new novel, Close Your Eyes, Hold Hands, will be on our shelves on July 8. Reserve your copy today!
