William Shakespeare is believed to have been born and died on the same day – April 23rd.

World Book Night on April 22, Shakespeare In The Parks April 6 - May 18, 2014 Summer Season

 

World Book Night

April 23 is a symbolic date for world literature. It is both the birth and death day of Shakespeare, as well as the death day of Cervantes, the great Spanish novelist. It is in their honor that UNESCO appointed it the international day of the book and that we choose it to celebrate World Book Night.

April 23 also marks the city of Barcelona’s celebration of St George’s Day. St George is the patron saint of Catalonia as well as England and traditionally, to celebrate this day, Spanish gentlemen gave their ladies roses and the ladies returned the favor with a book. Considering the rich literary history of this day, it seemed more than fitting that April 23 should be chosen as the day of celebrating reading and the giving of books!

On April 22 Kentucky Shakespeare and Carmichael’s Bookstore will celebrate WBN together holding sonnet readings and even doing performances in honor of the Bard.

Tuesday, April 22nd at 7 PM.
