Nov 1. This observance was adopted by the General Federation ofWomens Clubs in 1929 and in 1949 was given a place on the list of specialdays, weeks and months prepared by the US Department of Commerce. The resolution states in part: By celebrating an Authors Day as a nation, we would not only show patriotism, loyalty, and appreciation of the men and women who have made American literature possible, but would also encourage and inspire others to give of themselves in making a better America. It wasalso resolved that we commemorate an Authors Day to be observed on November First each year.
