Happy April! Hopefully everyone had a fun April Fool’s Day yesterday and is eagerly looking forward to this month of spring. Let’s start the month off on a good note with some April literary birthdays: Famous authors born in April: shakespeareWilliam Shakespeare – Born April 23rd, 1564. We’ll be releasing a Hamlet poster this month to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday, but this isn't our first time playing with Shakespeare. We already have a Romeo and Juliet art print  and our 2014 Literary Poster Calendar features a poster of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream!   rostandEdmond Rostand – Born April 1st, 1868. You are probably familiar with Rostand because of his work, Cyrano de Bergerac. If you love this play, be sure to check out our Cyrano de Bergerac art print and let us know what you think of it!   andersenHans Christian Andersen – Born April 2nd, 1805. Does The Little Mermaid or The Emperor's New Clothes ring a bell? Yup, both these fairy tales were the work of Andersen!   irvingWashington Irving – Born April 3rd, 1783. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is perhaps one of Irving’s more well-known works and our 2014 Literary Poster Calendar features an April illustration of this story to celebrate Irving’s birthday!   clearyBeverly Cleary – Born April 12th, 1916. Beloved author of the Ramona books, this writer is perhaps one of my favorites on this list. We’ll have some fun celebrating her birthday this month!   If you have a few famous authors to add to this list, don't be shy about letting us know. Each month is a celebration of great literature and authors so we'll jump at the chance for some literary partying! :)
