Celebrate 23 April, UNESCO World Book & Copyright Day and Sant Jordi, with #BooksAndRoses!!. In Barcelona and all over Catalonia people exchange books and roses as a token of appreciation. Nowadays, it is the day when more than 1.5 million books and more than 6 million roses are sold in Catalonia. In recent years all this has gone global: 150 events organized by volunteers in 50 countries. We would love to see the whole world sharing #BooksAndRoses on or around this date. Check booksandroses.cat to find out events near you!
