Celebrate your favorite authors on Author's Day

Writing is hard and writing a short story or a book is even harder. So thank your favorite authors for writing your favorite books and help budding writers and authors around you in any way you can so that they can achieve their dreams.

American Authors

It is not very clear how or where this unofficial holiday originated. Some records suggest that the seeds for creating a holiday celebrating authors were sown in 1928, by Nellie Verne Burt McPherson, the president of the Bement, Illinois Women’s Club. In 1949, the United States Department of Commerce recognized National Author's Day as a holiday that commemorates American authors.

How to Celebrate?

  • Re-read your favorite authors’ work or pick up a new book written by that author.
  • Want your loved one to see why you love a particular author? Why not gift them a book penned by them?

Did You Know…

…that according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Agatha Christie is the world’s bestselling author? Her books have been translated in over 44 languages and have sold over 4 billion copies worldwide.
