May 16, 2017 all-day
Biographer’s Day marks the anniversary of the meeting, at London, England, May 16, 1763, of James Boswell and Samuel Johnson, beginning history’s most famous biographer-biographee relationship. Boswell’s Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides (1785) and his Life of Samuel Johnson (1791) are regarded as models of biographical writing. Thus this day is recommended as one on which to start reading or writing a biography.
