On April 23, 2014, Shakespeare’s birthday, community book givers handed out free books all over the world. We had a great time giving away twenty copies of Armistead Maupin’s San Francisco-set stories, Tales of the City for World Book Night. We gave them away in gay bars in the Marigny and Quarter. The reception we received was very upbeat.
I hope to participate again next year. Want to become a volunteer book giver? Check out the WBN website: http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/
Here’s some pics of me with two friends who volunteered with me:
