This is a just-short-of six-month warning for a holiday coming up in April, World Book and Copyright Day.
It's a UNESCO-instituted global holiday inspired by the Catalunyan holiday, El Dia de la Rosa y el Libro, celebrated on St. George's Day, April 23.
I know my readership well enough to know that even the mere mention of UNESCO is probably eliciting some snickers or groans or other disapprobrious sounds.
I think it's a nice holiday anyway. And don't anybody feel inhibited from exchanging any roses or books solely on UNESCO's account.
