Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Tuesday November 1, 2016 is Authors' Day. If you’ve known the pains of raising ‘Little Women’, or have ridden on a raft with ol’ Huck Finn, if you’ve read all the horrors of Stephen King and lost yourself with ‘things to terrible to describe’ with Lovecraft, you’ve enjoyed the classics that American Authors can spin. Author's Day commemorates all the wonders that have been spun into the world by the pen of the American Author. It was 1928, and the Illinois Women’s Club was meeting yet again to enjoy the writings of some of their favorite authors. The idea of having a day dedicated to American Authors was brought up. An official request was submitted to the General Federation of Women’s Club. The idea did not go unheeded, and 20 years later, in 1949, the United States Department of Commerce made it an official holiday, Authors’ Day, and it’s been celebrated every year ever since. There are two ways to start your Authors’ Day celebration, either by picking up an American favorite or finding one you haven’t read yet and finally cracking it open. You can go to your local library and discuss the possibilities with the people there, no one knows American Authors like your local librarian. With titles like “The Scarlet Letter”, “The Grapes of Wrath”, and “The Great Gatsby” to choose from, how could you possible go wrong? Don’t have time to take in a book? American literature struck the world so hard that many of them have been turned into cinema, with one such classic being “Gone With The Wind” Make this day your day to feed another great book into your mind." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #fit #follow #like #celebrate #enjoy #wp #fb #twitter #tweet #buffer #tagsforlike #share #pop #blog #authorsday #linkinbio #lpt #ig #insta #author #writer #awesome #american #love #usa #sharpharmade . @instagram @sharpharmade
