"A book is a link between the past and the future. It is a bridge between generations and across cultures. It is a force for creating and sharing wisdom and knowledge." - excerpt of the message from Ms Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO on the occasion of the World Book and Copyright Day.
On 23 April 2016, we celebrate World Book and Copyright Day to promote books, reading and copyright. This date also marks the anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare and Cervantes, as well as that of the birth or death of several other prominent authors.
"A window onto our inner lives, books are also the doorway to mutual respect and understanding between people, across all boundaries and differences" - Ms. Irina Bokava
