Volunteers to give away books for World Book Night

As part of World Book Night, volunteers next Tuesday will be giving out free books around town. The national program, coordinated locally through the Homer Bookstore, will be giving away 500,000 books in 6,000 communities nationwide. Volunteers picked books from a list to distribute, and publishers donated books to give away. In Homer, volunteers pick up books at the Homer Bookstore to then give away around town at cafes, bars, etc. Books to be given away include “City of Thieves” by David Benioff, “The Language of Flowers” by Vanessa Diffenbaugh, “Good Omens” by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, “Still Alice” by Lisa Genova, “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Juster, “The Tender Bar” by J.R. Moehringer and “Glaciers” by Alexis M. Smith. For more information on World Book Night, visit www.worldbooknight.org.
