I’m assuming most of our readers are off with their families today enjoying Thanksgiving, so I’ll keep this brief!
It seems to me that with other major holidays (Christmas being the biggest with Halloween and New Year’s perhaps distant seconds), there is much thinking done about the holiday in literature. Christmas has its Dickens, Halloween has its Irving, and New Year’s for some reason always makes me think of Little Women (okay, I think of them at Christmas, too…that book is just highly memorable for me!).
But what about Thanksgiving? I thought and thought and couldn’t come up with one memorable literary Thanksgiving. Can you? And if not, please do share what you’re literarily thankful for this year! I’m still in awe of The Magus so I think I’ll be thankful for that this year. And beloved books that fit in tightly packed suitcases to comfort me while I’m away from home (yep, Little Women again).
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
