New November Birthdays Display

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.
  • Political figures are represented by Robert Kennedy, Joe McCarthy and William Cullen Bryant. But if you’ve had enough of the political, for a lighter look at life check out a book by birthday boy, cartoonist Charles Schulz.

Come in and have a look and a read!
