National Author’s Day

sad-writerNovember first is the day set aside as the day to celebrate your favorite author(s).

Nellie Verne Burt McPherson, President of the Bement Illinois Women’s Club, suggested it in 1928 as a means of thanking her favorite author, Irving Bacheller – author of “Eben Holden’s Last Day A Fishin.” The U.S. Department of Commerce recognized the date of November 1st as National Author’s Day in 1949.
