Coming Soon: Lloyd Alexander Day 2012

Beloved children's author Lloyd Alexander passed away on May 17, 2007. We  are fast approaching the 5th anniversary of his death. In commemoration of his life and writings, I am organizing a "Lloyd Alexander Day". I am hoping to reach as many Alexander fans as I can, and encourage everyone to do something to remember this beloved man. 

Some ideas that I have, of things that we can do to include:
  • Re-reading one of your favorite Alexander book 
  • Start reading an Alexander book that you've never read before
  • Post one/some of your favorite Alexander quotes on your Facebook and/or Twitter
  • Spread the word about the documentary that is being made about Lloyd Alexander
  • Visit the location of his Urn at Arlington Cemetery in Drexel Hill, PA
  • If you were lucky enough to have met him during his life, share a memory
This is something that I am wanting to turn into an annual tradition, however in future years it will take place on his birthday (January 30) rather than the anniversary of his death. Spread the word. I think this will be a wonderful way to commemorate the life and writings of Lloyd Alexander.
