Books must be backlist trade paperbacks, current or classics, for middle grades and up.
Additionally, WBN is compiling a complete book on local media coverage, with photos, to be sent to publishers, the media, and back out to booksellers. World Book Night U.S. Executive Director Carl Lennertz told BTW that he has already found a lot of the coverage online, but he is eager to receive any links to giver testimonials or photos that have been posted on Facebook. “If you have photos, please don’t send large attachments,” Lennertz said, “but describe to me what you have and I’ll reach out to you.” Facebook and local media links can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is June 22.
