- St George’s Day
- World Book and Copyright Day – the date chosen due to the number of prominent author births and deaths
- National Shakespeare Day (circa his birthday & death day)
- Vladimir Nabokov’s birthday (author of Lolita)
- Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra’s death (author of Don Quixote)
These all fall on April 23.
And just because I lurve dragons (sorry, George), I’m throwing in Never Deal with Dragons (DRACIM #1) by Lorenda Christensen.
