World Book Day (also know as World Book and Copyright Day) is celebrated on April 23rd in most parts of the world. Several literary anniversaries take place on this date. Among others, the death of some of the world’s most important writers, including William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, author of The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, probably the best-known Spanish literary work and one of the most acknowledged books worldwide.
