Tuesday's Truths WK 50: E.B. White's B'day!
Welcome to the fiftieth 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 aquaintance through his writings and aspire to leave a similar legacy!
