This Thursday, November 1st, is National Author's Day! National Author's Day is a celebration of literature and writers of all styles and genres, especially American writers. In its origin, National Author's Day was founded in Illinois in 1928 and was officially recognized by the United States Department of Commerce in 1949, but this day can be observed to recognize authors of any background. 


Did You Know

80 years ago, today, on October 30th, 1938, Orson Welles famously broadcasted a radio adaptation of The War of the Worlds. Though the whole story was made up as an episode of a radio show, the realistic production caused many listeners to think the news bulletins of martian invasions were true. A monument in Jersey Park where the invasion was said to have taken place commemorates the event. 


Have a great week and keep networking!
