Wise as a Book?

23 April is a symbolic date for world literature. It is the anniversary of the deaths of Cervantes, Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, who all died in 1616. It was a natural choice for UNESCO's General Conference, held in Paris in 1995, to pay a world-wide tribute to books and authors on this date through The World Book and Copyright Day.
