It is the birthday of William Faulkner (September 25, 1897 – July 6, 1962).
I wrote about him here earlier this year.
Mr. Faulkner didn't comfort us or pretty things up, but he did
stir our emotions and taught us things about our Southern
selves. Looking for a week-end read? Try As I Lay Dying
by William Faulkner.
