June 30: One Book Author Day

On this date in 1936, the novel Gone with the Wind was published by Margaret Mitchell.  The website Goodreads has a list of over 60 authors who wrote a single novel.  Notable titles include To Kill a Mockingbird and The Catcher in the Rye.

For a fascinating examination of this topic, check out the documentary The Stone Reader.  The film traces one man's quest to find one book author Dow Mossman who published The Stones of Summer in 1976.
