World Book Night took place on 23 April with thousands of people across the country joining the party and celebrating their love of reading. We caught up with Reading Activists to find out what they got up to.
Warrington Reading Activists gave books to people throughout their community and they didn't just stick to the official night; they decided to give books in different places throughout the week! Firstly they gave books to a group of young people involved in the Friday Project. These young people have left education and are all seeking training or employment.
They also gave 300 books out at Orford Park Hub, a site which delivers leisure, community, health and education facilities to the community.
They gave twenty books to Fearnhead Youth Club, some to the Youth Café in Warrington, the Pyramid Arts Centre and they are also giving out 60 copies of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas to the film club at Culcheth campus. The campus contains a school, leisure facilities and children's centre.
Gateshead Libraries celebrated World Book Night with special guest David Almond, who gave an inspiring talk about his love of libraries and how his career as an author began. Reading Activists gave readings from some of their favourite books and David Almond gave each of them a signed copy of one of his books. He also offered some great advice and encouragement on becoming a writer.
World Book Night caused quite a stir on social media. Here's our Storify round up.
