Annually on April 23 World Book Night provides 20 copies of books to individuals who commit to being a Book Giver, talking about their book & giving away the copies. The Athenaeum, in cooperation with World Book Night, encourages those interested to apply to become A Book Giver . If your application is accepted, you will be provided with free copies of your chosen book.
Your giveaway copies will be shipped to the Athenaeum, where we host a small reception for all Book Givers picking up their books, sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum. There is no cost to you.
Will you consider joining us in the fun by becoming a Book Giver for 2013? Application Deadline: January 23.
