Why World Book Day Is Celebrated On April 23?
Most of the book lovers believe that April 23 is a symbolic date in world literature because many prominent authors such as William Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died on this date.

The day is also celebrated to encourage individuals to access books.
