Anniversaries and Birthdays

Don't miss the great Bibliophile Bullpen list of today's birthdays and anniversaries, for which January 1 seems to be a red-letter day! The start of Pepys' diary (1660), the marriage of James Fenimore Cooper (1811), the first issue of Garrison's "The Liberator" (1831) and the date of the New York Public Library's incorporation (1849) are just a few of the notable moments.
