Today is World Book Day!

Cover of Doerr All the Light You Cannot SeeDid you know that today (April 23) is World Book Day?

This worldwide celebration is marked in over 100 countries around the globe. Each year, UNESCO picks a World Book Capital for a one-year period (this year’s choice is Incheon, South Korea).

Our staff loves books and reading, and we even have a book club here at Academic Arrangements Abroad. For our next book club pick, we will be reading All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr.  It is about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II, and coincidentally it just won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

The next couple of months will be busy with spring trips. Also, the book is a bit long, so we are planning to have a discussion about the book during the second half of June.
