World Book Day was celebrated worldwide on Thursday 7th March 2013. World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and most importantly, it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest event of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
To mark the occasion, Agenda Bookshops offered 25% off ALL books on the day.
‘Mikiel’, the popular Kids Club mascot, paid a visit to St Monica School, Gzira as well as St Michael’s School, San Gwann. His mission for the day was to encourage more children to read and in doing so he presented several children with a ‘World Book Day’ goodie bag.
