Happy Friday All,
Thinking back on all the books that have been popular, it makes me wonder what we're going to leave behind.
Some of us grew up reading such literary giants like JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters.
Ray Bradbury and Beverly Cleary come to mind as literary giants (for different reasons than the ones mentioned above) with a more contemporary feel, but ones that will be recognizable for a long time.
Who will this next few decades be remembered for?
I'd like to think folks I've come to know and gotten to be friends with will be mentioned in the same conversations as the success stories of JK Rowling and Stephenie Meyer (those authors will go down in history as things that caught the fancy of the late 20th and early 21st centuries...if not, I would be surprised--simply because there's been so much ado over them--whether you like them or not, you can't fail to notice).
There's so many wonderful authors I'd love to name, but can't (because I'd be sure to forget someone and besides, that would make this post insanely long), who I'd hope would be mentioned in the same breath as some of the more popular ones.
So for today and the weekend, let's contemplate that question. Who are the literary giants of the late 20th and early 21st centuries (whether by your opinion and/or by success)?
Have A Fantastic Friday!
