Dear Wisteria....World Book Night friend,


You are a 2013 World Book Night giver!   

I just found out via e-mail that I will be a World Book Night giver again this year.  Yippee!!!!   As an avid reader and lover of books, I couldn't be happier.  Last year, was the first year for World Book Night.  It turned out to be an amazingly successful premier event and I was fortunate to be a part of it.

The book I gave to readers is a favorite of mine. THE IMMORTAL LIFE OF HENRIETTA LACKS, written by Rebecca Skloot.  Those who received a copy were quite grateful and anxious to begin reading.  It was satisfying to hear so much positive feedback and discuss their opinions.  After the favorable response last year, I can't wait to be able to see more smiles when I pass out books to another group to my community this coming April 23rd.

Check out this  You-Tube clip from ABC News about last years event. 

I will share updates as we get closer to the event.
