October is National Book Month

Back in 2003, the National Book Foundation launched the first ever national book month celebration in October to shine a spotlight on the importance of reading, writing and literature.

The month-long celebration is also a chance to honor the best books and author’s in the country, as the 15 finalists for this year’s National Book Awards will be announced in the middle of October. The National Book Awards were founded more than 70 years ago by the National Book Foundation.
