The World Book Capital programme entails organizing and overseeing a large number of events to bring together the local and national book industries, civil society and local government to promote books, reading and literacy. It is a powerful platform for attracting sponsorship and funding for book-related institutions, for raising awareness of literacy and reading issues, for highlighting the benefits of a lively book culture and for drawing international attention to a city and country's literary heritage.
