Authors' Day

Celebrate National Authors’ Day Today!

Do you celebrate Authors’ Day? This is a national holiday that is celebrated every November 1.

History of Authors’ Day

It was 1928, and the Illinois Women’s Club was meeting to enjoy the writings of some of their favorite authors. Nellie Verne Burt McPherson decided to bring up the idea of having a day dedicated to American Authors and brought it up to her club members. She submitted her suggestion to the General Federation of Women’s Club.

Twenty years later, in 1949, the United States Department of Commerce made Authors’ Day an official holiday, and it’s been celebrated every year ever since.

How to celebrate

What can you do to celebrate? There are several paths to take when it comes to celebrating this particular holiday. Which is your favorite?

  • Read an American Classic
  • Read a book you’ve never read before
  • Read a book by an Indie author
  • Re-read your favorite book
  • Write a book review

Any of these options are viable options. If you consider yourself a book worm (like us), maybe try challenging yourself by completing the list. Our advise is to add a few cups of coffee to the list to make it through.

Friday Afternoon Saturday Night Fever

Another Birthday/Happy Hour combo? Heck yeah! This past week we celebrated another year of being awesome for one of our newest team members – Billy! We figured we’ve had more than enough cake lately, so why not shake things up and do a Birthday pie instead? Salted caramel chocolate pecan – pass me a piece please!

For our Happy Hour, we danced our way back to the 1970’s with a Seven & Seven – the same drink that John Travolta’s character ‘Tony’ drinks at the disco! Now, everybody do the hustle and join us in wishing Billy a Happy Birthday!

4th Of July Office Party

Another incredible 4th of July has come and gone, and Crisp Marketing celebrated in style (as usual)! We kicked off our office party with a catered Burger Bar from Red Robin. Then we played Pin The Star On The Flag, did a tie dye craft, and ended the celebration with some sparklers and fireworks! That’s one more awesome celebration for the books. We hope everyone had a fantastic 4th of July!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Crisp Marketing

Yesterday we had our “Mix Tape Party” (AKA Valentine’s Day office party – 80s style). Not only did we watch Dirty Dancing and listen to some 80s romance songs, but we got all pizza’d out and even played a quick round of 80s Rom Com Trivia!

 

We even got a few pictures of our team members in full Valentine’s Day spirit!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day from all of us at Crisp Marketing!

We all gathered in our favorite conference room and enjoyed some brew-inspired decor, a mini-flight of locally-made beers, and of course – Beer Bingo!

We ordered in some burgers from a local burger joint (which were AWESOME), and everyone went home with their own beer mug and homemade popcorn! All in all, our International Beer Day celebration was a complete success!
