Amy Poehler Named Honorary Chairperson For ‘World Book Night’

From USA Today:

Actress and comedian Amy Poehler has been named the honorary chairperson for this year’s World Book Night literary giveaway.

“I grew up loving books,” Poehler, 42, who’s best known for her roles on Saturday Night Live and Parks and Recreation, said in a statement. “People who read are people who dream, and we connect through the stories we live and tell and read.”

The third annual World Book Night U.S., to be held April 23, is organized by a coalition of publishers, booksellers and librarians. They will enlist 25,000 volunteers who give away a total of 500,000 books – mostly aimed at areas and groups where books are not that prevalent.

Et tu, Amy?
