Here is theΒ  English translation

Today April 23 marks the World Book and Copyright Day, which is also called Book and Roses Day.

The date April 23 was chosen because on that day, in 1616, three great men of world literature died: the Englishman William Shakespeare, the Spanish Miguel de Cervantes and the Peruvian Garcilaso Inca de la Vega.

Born in Catalonia on the day of Sant Jordi (Saint George), the Spanish "book and rose festival" became UNESCO International Day.

On the day dedicated to Sant Jordi, according to tradition, men give their women a rose, which, according to legend, was born from the blood gushed from the body of the dragon killed by Saint George.
This is why it has become customary for booksellers to give a gift to customers for every book bought
