Happy National Author’s Day
I have just learnt that 1 November is the day to celebrate your favourite authors in America. The US Department of Commerce recognised 1 November as National Author’s Day in 1949. (Read more here).
I love this idea. I have found faith, solace, joy, and redemption in the books I have read. From the moment I could read, I was entranced by the magic that existed between the pages of a novel. I am grateful to all the authors who truly made me realise I was not alone.
I wanted to celebrate by putting together a selection of my favourite quotes about writers. I hope you enjoy them.
