NATIONAL AUTHOR’S DAY
Every year on November 1, millions of people celebrate authors and the books that they write on National Author’s Day.
After her grandmother’s death in 1968, Sue Cole promoted the observance of National Authors Day. She urged people to write a note to their favourite author on November 1, to “brighten up the sometimes-lonely business of being a writer.”
She also suggested flying the American flag as another way of showing appreciation for the men and women who have created American literature.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Purchase some books by your favourite author to support them.
Use #NationalAuthorsDay to post on social media. #Lesley Strachan
