Today is World Book Night!
Each year, 30- 35 books are chosen by an independent panel of librarians and booksellers. The authors of the books waive their royalties and the publishers agree to pay the costs of producing the specially-printed World Book Night U.S. editions. After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community.
And guess what - our Children's Librarian applied and received 20 copies of "Hoot" by Carl Hiassen!
Want a copy of the book? Stop by the Reference Desk today! She will be giving away 10 copies of her books here at the Brown Deer Library!
