National Authors Day ~ November 1st 2016

Today is National Authors Day.This day began way back in 1928 when teacher and president of the Bement Illinois woman’s club, Nellie Verne Burt McPherson wrote a fan letter to an author in appreciation of his story. The idea evolved from there and, in 1949 it became an annual observance day which was recognised by the US Department of Commerce. Writing can be a lonely pursuit. Why not write and tell your favourite authors how much you enjoy their books? Or spread the word about how enjoyable you find their writing? Happy National Authors Day people! A few of my favourites are Maya Angelou, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Charles Dickens. Who are some of your favourite authors?
