November 1st is National Author's Day - Who is your favorite author?
November 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.
What better way to celebrate than to spend a few minutes sharing who your favorite authors are, as well as sharing your personal favorite books that they've written.
Regardless of your preferred genre, please give us your top five 'must reads'.
For additional fun, please tell us which book you would recommend others read if they could only read one book.
Fly a flag, write your favorite author a letter or send them an email, buy a book or write one, share the words of your favorite author with someone you love!
