Tuesday's Truths WK 48: E.B. White's B'day!


Welcome to the forty-eighth week of my Tuesday's Truths. Today's post is dedicated to E.B. White, who was born on this day in 1899. Many people know him from his book, Charolette's Web. As you may recall, dear reader, I've written about White's intent in his creating Charolette's Web here Blogger.

In any event, White's desire to be true to the animals who he anthropomorphized was my inspiration in helping Cam with her book, Words In Our Beak Volume One.


But getting back to White's writings: Besides Charolette's Web, E.B. White wrote other books (including Stuart Little, Here Is New York, and, The Elements of Style).

However, he is also known for his prolific essays which were published in The New Yorker. I have featured a number of them on Facebook and within blog entries here.

I'm so thankful to have made his acquaintance through his writings and aspire to leave a similar legacy!
ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.


Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
