21st October is Ursula Le Guin’s Birthday
(via Cat Rambo and Vonda McIntyre)
Today, October 21st, is the 80th birthday of Ursula Le Guin, and the 40th anniversary of The Left Hand of Darkness. I hope she has a great birthday. I don’t know her personally, but she’s one of my absolute favourite writers, and she changes my outlook on things on a regular basis (starting with A Wizard of Earthsea and The Language of the Night).
