Bookparade

Today is UNESCO World Book Day and to celebrate this the Bookparade was held in the old city of Z├╝rich. Last year about 200 book aficionados took part in the first Bookparade.



This year the hopes were high to reach up to 500 people, with simultaneous Bookparades held in St. Gallen, Luzern and Biel. Unfortunately, Saint Peter had other plans and so it rained cats and dogs just when the Bookparade was about to start.



But die-hard book lovers cannot be stopped by rain and so around 50 people accompanied this second book parade which was accompanied by recitations from the Poetry Slammers Lara Stoll and Simon Chen.



And so it once again was a unique experience and I'm looking hoping that next time the sun will join our little parade again :)
