NOW AVAILABLE: The 2021 Literary Wall Calendar

Happy Friday,

Many of you asked for it, and now you can have it. A calendar listing notable writers’ birthdays and literary events throughout the year is now available on Bidwell Hollow’s Etsy shop.

It’s a wall calendar featuring more than 1,000 birthdays and events. Such a calendar was the most-requested item in the reader survey I sent you all a few months ago.

This is the first calendar from Bidwell Hollow. If there’s interest in this year’s calendar, I’ll work to find different, more affordable options, such as a daily desk calendar, for 2022.

In the meantime, check out the 2021 Literary Wall Calendar from Bidwell Hollow. As far as I can tell, it’s unlike any calendar on the market!

Thanks for reading,

P.S. Monday’s This Week in Literary History email contained two errors. Grace Paley was born in 1922, not in 1992. And I inexplicably left out the entire story about Bill Bryson. Both are corrected on the website.
