Events organized by Literary Club in 2015
World Book Day :on 23rd April 2015
World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day is a yearly event on 23rd April, organized by UNESCO, to promote reading, publishing and copyright. The connection between 23rd April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Catalonia, Spain as a way to honor William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and several other prominent authors who were born or died on this day. The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures of books and reading by providing them with the opportunity to have a book of their own. Keeping this in mind, St. Agnes School celebrated World Book Day on 23rd April organized by the Literary Club.
The Literary Club members organized a short assembly in the morning and highlighted the importance of reading books through a narrative play, some quotes and explained the significance of the aims of UNESCO .
A book fair was held on 23rd and 24th April in the school cycle-parking lot. A Progressive Book seller from the IIT Campus was requested to come and set up their stall. They displayed an array of books—fiction, nonfiction, autobiographies etc. They arrived in the morning and were helped by the Literary Club members and animator to put up the stall. The area was nicely decorated with posters and festoons prepared by the club members. Students from classes 1 to 10 were taken to the book stall in batches and they bought books and ordered for the ones which were not available. Parents were also encouraged to visit the book stall after 1:30pm on both days. The book fair was a huge success with both students and book seller smiling all the way back home.
