It's A Big Day For Book Nerds!

As a part of Banned Books Week, NPR ran this great story on The Grapes of Wrath. It's the sort of story that makes me proud to teach English and prouder to be the great niece of migrant Okies who did, in fact, settle in Northern CA.

I also spent most of the morning laboring under the impression that today is the 80th birthday of our beloved Oxford English Dictionary. Well, it's not. I guess the story I heard on NPR was a rerun?

Have a Merry Unbirthday, OED! I'm off to get more coffee and perhaps hear clearly.
