Today Is National Grammar Day

Created by Bob Helmbrecht, collection development librarian

National Grammar Day was created by Martha Brockenbrough, founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar, in 2008. She was teaching high school at this time, and came up with the idea to help inspire her students. It is a day to bring attention to the importance of good grammar, and to promote resources to help people learn to write and speak in grammatically correct ways.
