Birthdays in Literature

Welcome to Birthdays in Literature! Many people know when Shakespeare's birthday is or when J. K. Rowling celebrates her day of honour. I thought I would extend this opportunity to authors, who might not be quite as well known.While many of them may not make gigantic contributions to world literature, they all do their part to enrich our lives with their writings. Therefore, I believe, they all deserve a special birthday greeting. Join me in wishing them a Happy Birthday!

Today's birthday spotlight is Ms. Mary C. Garner! Mary Garner is a published author and dedicated philanthropist. Her work includes a best selling book, The Hidden Souls of Words, and three workbooks on: Anger, Love, and Forgiveness. In coordination, she has authored articles on Anger and Violence Prevention. Her writing career has been bolstered by her multiple avenues of study. Mary holds degrees in religion and theology, clinical psychology, and international law. Her diverse interests and the overarching desire to be of service have led to teaching, human rights advocacy, counseling, disarmament negotiating, dispute resolution, and global efforts of interfaith cooperation and peace-building. Many life experiences have profoundly demonstrated to her how good can come from what may look impossible on the surface. Her most recent book, Calling All Angels; Taxi to a New Eden is inspired by mind expanding experiences and coincidences that are powerful, uplifting, awe-inspiring and in certain instances lifesaving. In 1985, Mary established a foundation, HOPE, INC., which continues to address both the material and spiritual needs of children and their caregivers. The majority of the proceeds from her published work go to charitable programs. She lives in Washington, DC and has three grown sons.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Garner!
