I am thinking about holding a monthly event dedicated to beloved classic authors. Each month I will chose one author to devote that month to. For example, the month of February may be dedicated to Jane Austen, (the obvious example) in which I will post mainly about her. I would also be interested in perhaps having guest posts on said author, I think it would be very cool to learn others thoughts on the subject rather than just my own.
I thought of this idea after participating in November’s Autumn Author prompt, and realized that while I adored Pride and Prejudice didn’t know much on the author herself. This sent my mind in motion of all the authors I love but after setting Little Women or Jane Eyre down I’d just moving on to the next book with out a care of the person who wrote it. This event is really a way for myself (or anyone else) to learn of the writer behind the book (that might be a good title) hopefully in a fun low key manner without coming off as a book report.
I had begun throwing around this semi-book report in my head a few nights ago so is still in the incubator stage. Therefore there may be some tweaking going on. Anyway, while rather vague at the moment I’ve thrown my thoughts out there and we’ll see where they land.
