Due to its smashing success last year, New Rivers Press will again be holding a Valentine’s Book Giveaway event next Tuesday, February 14th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in MSUM’s Comstock Memorial Union (CMU). Just like last year, the event will be held to celebrate International Book Giving Day, a day dedicated to spreading the love of reading all over the world.
Your friendly neighborhood New Rivers interns and friends will have a booth set up by the east stairs of the CMU (in the new addition) where we will dispense such goodies as free galley copies of recent New Rivers titles, information and pamphlets on MSUM’s publishing degree and certificate and the coveted Printing Devil buttons.
International Book Giving Day was started as a charitable event designed to increase access to and enthusiasm for reading for all, especially children and those in foreign countries. You can learn more about the organization’s goals by visiting their website and get more ideas about how you can participate in International Book Giving Day. Here also, is a handy infographic about things you can do to spread the love of reading.
Be sure to share you experiences on social media with the hashtag #bookgivingday.
