This Week in Reading Feb. 25 - Mar. 3

It's another week of prolific writers and seminal events. Most authors born in this week are well known, a few are well-worn, and several were in worlds of their own. Three were known also for what they did to bring the work of others to the public as well as for their own work.

If you would like to name your favorite books by authors born in this week, or any other, or share a few brief words about what an author or event or the library means to you we invite you to COMMENT here on the blog.

This Week's Question: Which writer got married in Glendale? If that is too obcure for you, which writer's book was the inaugural choice for California's One City One Book program in 2004?

The Answer to Last Week's Question: Nobel prizewinner Toni Morrison has had four of her books in Oprah's Book Club: The Bluest Eye, Paradise, Song of Solomon, and Sula. Carson McCullers' The Heart is a Lonely Hunter also appeared on the list.
