Literate Celebrations

Happy birthday to Eddie Izzard, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Sinclair Lewis, Gay Talese, James Spader, Charles Dickens, and Eubie Blake.

I mean, how stupendous is Mr. Blake?

Also on this day ... (still loving Dena's dedication to this daily treat!) Here are the notable lists from Wikipedia. Ooh, Pete Postlethwaite!

Eubie Blake's work has always seemed to me a fount of joyous expression. The mere sound of his name makes me smile, and his talent and energy are powerful. So glad you enjoyed his playing! I love LOVE that bit where he gets up and just triumphs in his own work. Fantastic.
