This Day in History

Today we commemorate the birth of another famous American author, William Faulkner, who was born in 1897. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature (1949), Faulkner is considered one of the masters of the Southern gothic genre. A testament to Faulkner’s lasting influence on American literature was the selection in 2005 of three of his novels for Oprah’s Book Club.
