Love reading, want to help combat global illiteracy and free tonight (March 20)? Bring a copy of your favorite book along with a note as to why you think it’s so special then swap it for a book that was equally important to someone else at the Big Book Swap at Daunt Books in Holland Park (6-8.30pm). Room to Read, a global non-profit organisation that empowers children in the developing world through education, are asking all guests for a minimum donation of £10 which will buy ten local language books. With almost 800 million illiterate adults in the world, swapping your favourite book is an easy way to get involved.
