Happy birthday, L. Frank Baum; Katherine Anne Porter.

Pay plenty of attention to the man behind the curtain... Lymon Frank Baum, the creator of the Great and Powerful Oz, was born today near Syracuse, New York, in 1856.

And Ship of Fools author Katherine Anne Porter was born today in Indian Creek, Texas, in 1890. Take a virtual tour of the Katherine Anne Porter room at the University of Maryland (she lived in the Washington, DC area before her death in 1980).
