As dusk falls in our state and many others, volunteers will gather to give out free books.
World Book Night is meant to get books into the hands of adults and spread the love of literature. The books will be given out at stores, hospitals, libraries and schools to light and non-readers. At least 500,000 books will be given away during the event.

This year's honorary chairwoman is actress and comedian Amy Poehler.
"I grew up loving books," Poehler said in a statement in USA Today. "People who read are people who dream, and we connect through the stories we live and tell and read."
The World Book Night organizers chose a diverse list of books this year, which you can check out here.
