Remembering 2014

The year 2014 saw a handful of literary anniversaries that didn’t make it in to the column.

Louise Fitzhugh’s fabulous sleuth, Harriet The Spy, turned 50 (though Harriet is perpetually a child). She is always clutching a notebook and pencil, and wants to be a writer. Great writers, however, must be mercilessly truthful. And when your friends get hold of your mercilessly truthful notebook, forgiveness is difficult.… Harriet The Spy can be found at C-226 in the children’s section of the Lennoxville Library.

The celebrated Canadian author Margaret Atwood turned 75 this year. Find her novels in Adult Fiction.

Pulp writer William S Burroughs was born 100 years ago, as was Ralph Ellison (author of the African-American classic The Invisible Man), Nobel Prize-winning Mexican poet Octavio Paz, French novelist and essayist Marguerite Duras, the American Bernard Malamud, and Dylan Thomas (A Child’s Christmas In Wales is in the children’s section).
