Now in its third year, World Book Night is a celebration of reading, made possible by authors, publishers, readers, and bookstores and libraries around the country and around the world. Greenlight is proud to be a participating bookstore, and tonight they’ll hand over cartons of books to World Book Night Givers to give away the following Tuesday! To mark the occasion, they’ve asked a few of the Givers to read from or talk about the books they’ve selected to give away from this year’s World Book Night title list. There may also be a surprise celebrity guest or two to join in the celebration of reading! Join us for a joyous evening of sharing the books we love, followed by a wine reception for all attendees.
