Birthdays: Cicero (106 BC), John Fletcher (1886), J.R.R. Tolkien (1892), Carolyn Haywood (1898), Erik Larson (1954), Patricia Lee Gauch (1934), Alex Wheatle (1963), Charles Yu (1976).

Quote: “Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Erik Larson won the 2004 Edgar Award for Best Fact Crime for “The Devil in the White City”.

John Gould Fletcher won the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry for “Selected Poems”

I will admit to never having finished reading TLotR by Tolkien. I’ve read parts of the books, but not all of them. I think I need to look at them again.
