Domtar's commitment comes as part of its award-winning PAPERbecause campaign that showcases paper's sustainability and enduring value in a digital age.

"World Book Night is a reminder that paper is personal, purposeful and sustainable, and we're proud to support it" said Paige Goff, Domtar's Vice-President of Sustainable Business and Brand Management. "Domtar believes in the power and joy of the simple act of reading a printed book, and this is a great way for us to give back to readers around the country."

"We chose a variety of books about different subjects so that everyone can find something appealing, no matter where they live, what their age, what their backgrounds are or what interests them the most," said World Book Night U.S. Executive Director Carl Lennertz. "We're thrilled that Domtar will be working with us and helping get people connected with books they will love to read."
