An e-mail from a young fan wished me a happy National Author’s Day. I had never heard of this occasion but I checked and discovered that yes, indeed, Nov. 1 has officially been National Author’s Day since 1946. How could I not have known this all these years? It sounds to me like a fine excuse to celebrate with chocolate.
