Dear Friends,

I don't do this very often, but I am writing to you to encourage all of you to sign up for this amazing event.  This is a cause dear to my heart and I hope all of you will consider participating. It is an opportunity to change lives through books.


A deadline for signing up is imminent – February 6 – but give me a moment to explain what this is all about.

World Book Night is a campaign to find light or non-readers in the community and hand them each a book.


Want to be part of a million-book giveaway? To volunteer to change a life? You can, as part of World Book Night, on April 23, 2012.

It was started in the U.K. last year, and it is coming to our shores on April 23, 2012 – Shakespeare's birthday, not coincidentally – as well! 

The World Book Night organization is printing hundreds of thousands of special free paperback editions, and they are looking for thousands of volunteers to go out on April 23 and give books out across America. To get more people reading.

You pick the place: hospital or diner, school or ... well, lots of possibilities. Be creative.

Sign up by February 6 to be a book giver on World Book Night!  Please go the website to read up on its mission, the books you can choose from to give away, and some rules and regulations. All you need to become a giver is a little time, a love of books, and the desire to give something to your community.
Think about where you'd like to give away the books before you go online to apply. And thank you! Please feel free to pass this information on.


If we all get together, we can make a difference in our community. Perhaps we can gather as a group at HenschelHAUS in Bay View for a pot luck and/or drumming and come up with a creative way to give books away. If you're one of my outside of Milwaukee friends, perhaps you can gather your own groups. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Please forward this e-mail and information to anyone you may feel would like to get involved.


Thank you!!
