Happy Birthday, Jacques, Anne and Maurice!

11 Jun

Today I have several famous birthdays to announce: Today (June 11) is the centennial of the late marine scientist Jacques Cousteau’s birthday.

Tommorow (June 12) is the 81st anniversary of famed World War II diarist Anne Frank’s birthday.

I’d also like to wish a slightly belated birthday to beloved children’s author and illustrator Maurice Sendak, author of Where the Wild Things Are, among others. Mr. Sendak’s birthday was yesterday, June 10.
