World Book Day was established by UNESCO to promote the enjoyment of books and reading. Each April 23rd, celebrations take place all over the world to recognize the importance of books as a link between the past and the future, a bridge between generations and across cultures.
April 23rd is a symbolic date in world literature - William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died on this date. To commemorate the day, here are some favorite titles recently released and compiled by Nice News, including an inspiring memoir by a Boston Marathon winner and an in-depth look into the royal marriage that may have “saved the monarchy.”
