Happy Birthday James Thurber!

I read this article in yesterday's Dispatch and thought about how wonderful it is to have a such a talented cartoonist (and yes, a very funny author) from Columbus be so celebrated here in the States and internationally.

There are quite a few things going on at the Thurber House over the next year, but this Wednesday (from 6-9p) you can join in the celebration of Mr. Thurber's 114th birthday at the Westin Columbus (310 S. High St.) "featuring the author of My Lucky Star, the 2007 Thurber Prize for American Humor winner, Joe Keenan. He is a five time Emmy Award winner and two time winner of the Writers Guild of America Award for his writing on the hit TV series, Frasier, where he also rose from executive story editor to executive producer. In 2007, he shared an Annie Award for best writing of an animated feature for Flushed Away. He has also written and produced several episodes of Desperate Housewives." 

Should be a great evening!

Also, I came across this YouTube vid; once upon a time... it was James Thurber's world and we were all welcome to it.
