Happy Birthday Thread

Recommended Posts

Happy Birthday Mrs/Mr *insert author here*. Since we have a general RIP thread (at it's always a bummer whenever I see that one bumped), I figured we should have a thread that celebrates the birth of an author. That one magical day when the person that wrote our favourite novels was born.  And without further ado, happy birthday James Joyce, born on this day, 1882!
