World Book Night Host Store Agreements Due December 1
Stores that wish to participate in the 2013 celebration of World Book Night in the U.S. must return a Host Store Marketing Agreement by December 1. By signing the agreement, booksellers are affirming their commitment to be both a book pick-up location and an active promoter of World Book Night in their communities. Bookstore sign-up has been underway since September.
Earlier this month, World Books Night U.S. revealed the 30 titles to be given away during the April 23, 2013 campaign and opened the online application process for those wishing to become volunteer book givers next spring.
Booksellers who would also like to be givers can apply online, or they can fill out an Excel spreadsheet to be sent to participating stores by World Book Night U.S. Executive Director Carl Lennertz.
Authors Ann Patchett and James Patterson will be co-chairs of the 2013 celebration of World Book Night in the U.S.
