National Authors Day History
National Author’s Day seeks to celebrate authors and their work. This day was created in 1928 by the president of the Illinois Women’s Club, Nellie Verne Burt McPherson. McPherson thought of the idea after receiving a signed copy of a novel from one of her favorite authors, Irving Bacheller. To show her appreciation, and to let others share theirs, McPherson submitted the idea for National Author’s Day to the General Federation of the Women’s Club.
National Author’s Day was officially recognized in 1949 by the U.S Department of Commerce. It is observed annually on November 1st.
