Books to be hidden around Angola on Sept. 18

Trine University’s Writing Center is encouraging members of the community to hide books around the city of Angola for Hide a Book Day on Sept. 18.

The event, which is meant to help readers share their favorite books with others in a fun way that encourages reading and community conversation, will be celebrated in more than 100 countries in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Good Reads website for book lovers. Kits including a guide and a label to mark books that are part of the event will be available at Trine University’s Writing Center in Shambaugh Hall 206 and the Angola Public Library beginning Tuesday, Sept. 12.

Those who participate are asked to hide favorite books around the city and share photos on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #hideabookday, #ibelieveinbookfairies and #trinebookfairies.
