A small birthday celebration [Oct. 17th, 2014|05:39 pm]
[Tags|, ]

Today is Alan Garner's 80th birthday.

I was beginning to think I had invented this fact, because everyone is keeping so quiet about it, but his unofficial website confirms his date of birth. Perhaps it's a surprise party?

Anyway, here's my contribution: a nice little story I found while I was poking around the web. "Forty years ago I 'won' Alan Garner in a Puffin Club competition..."

Happy birthday, Mr Garner!

Is he someone you read as a child? I think of him as a very English author...
