Thomas Hardy's birthday

Saturday, 02 Jun 2018

On this day, in 1840, Thomas Hardy was born.

"The business of the poet and the novelist is to show the sorriness underlying the grandest things and the grandeur underlying the sorriest things."

Have you planned a book day to celebrate? If not, don't wait for World Book Day, book one of our novelists today and meet a real live author.
