WORLD BOOK DAY

 

What is the World Book Day?

The International Day of the Book is a celebration established in 1995 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Since 2002, the Guadalajara International Book Fair celebrates this day with a 12-hour long public reading marathon. The work of the selected author is chosen through public voting, and has included Juan José Arreola (2002 and 2011), Julio Cortázar (2003), Pablo Neruda (2004), Julio Verne (2005), Jorge Luis Borges (2006), Gabriel García Márquez (2007), Agustín Yáñez (2008), Horacio Quiroga (2009), Jorge Ibargüengoitia (2010), Juan José Arreola (2011) Bram Stoker (2012), Jane Austen (2013), José Emilio Pacheco (2014) and Lewis Carroll (2015).

In celebration of this year’s World Book Day 43,127 readers participated in bringing Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland to life at over 150 places in Jalisco, Mexico City and other states including Mexico State, Michoacán, Querétaro and Yucatán.
