Happy birthday to those born in November! There are books by and about famous people who were born in this month featured on our new third floor display.
- Are you interested in music? Did you know that W.C. Handy, John Philip Sousa, Jimi Hendrix and Joni Mitchell were all born in the eleventh month.
- Born more than 400 years apart, religious leaders Martin Luther and Billy Graham had November birthdays.
- World War II military leaders George Patton and Erwin Rommel both were born in this month.
- Or you can check out books about journalists Walter Cronkite and Ida Tarbell and scientists Carl Sagan and Edmond Halley.
- There are so many literary figures who were born this month: Neil Gaiman, Louisa May Alcott, James Agee, C.S. Lewis, Mark Twain, Marianne Moore, Albert Camus, and Robert Louis Stevenson.
