Mark Your Calendars - November Holidays and Observances

At Page-A-Day, we don't just want to bring you beautiful, amazing calendars—we also want to help you fill them too! Check out all the exciting holidays and observances coming up in November.

Monthly observances in November:

  • Adopt A Senior Pet Month. Give a pet the best years of his or her life by adopting a senior pet. Animal lovers of all stripes will enjoy Do Unto Animals, part practical guide, part memoir of a compassionate life with animals, and part testament to the power of giving back.
  • National Novel Writing Month. Otherwise known as NaNoWriMo, November is the month where hundreds of thousands of writers dig in and follow their literary passions. Get inspired and fall in love with the best books of the season in our Compelling Reads collection. 
  • Picture Book Month. Remember the joy of flipping the pages in your favorite picture book? Fall into the pure pleasure of Sandra Boynton, Barney Saltzberg (author of Good Egg, Arlo Needs Glasses, and Beautiful Oops!), or make your own picture book with How to Tell A Story!
