Author’s Day is celebrated on the first of November every year and pays tribute to the hardworking American authors you love to read. Visionaries like Stephen King, Mark Twain, Agatha Christie, and J. D. Salinger have all impacted millions of lives through their stories. Get lost in the pages of a thrilling murder mystery, follow your favorite adventurer into the darkest jungles, or fall in love on the high seas with swashbuckling pirates and damsels in distress. You can find just about any kind of adventure in the pages of a great book.

In 1928, Nellie Verne Burt McPherson was at her Illinois Women’s Club, where she first brought up the idea of dedicating a day to the authors she and the other members loved so much. In May of 1929, the club signed a resolution honoring American authors with their own day. The United States Department of Commerce officially made Author’s Day a national holiday twenty years later.

How to Celebrate Author's Day

Celebrate Author’s Day by heading to your local library and finding an American author to read, like James Patterson, Dean Koontz, or Danielle Steel. Or gather some friends to discuss your favorite author or books and strike up a lively debate. #AuthorsDay
