Biographers Day is held on May 16. This event in the second decade of the month May is annual. Help us
Biographies can help us learn about people who have inspired us, and have impacted our world. The oldest written biographies that historians have were written to record rulers' lives. Some were written in Assyria, ancient Babylonia, ancient Egypt and ancient Mesopotamia. Biographies were an early form of history. Another early form of biography was called hagiography, meaning writing about holy people. Biographies can share important facts that we didn't know, but they can also be interesting and fun to read!
