Happy birthday, Edith!
Today is novelist Edith Wharton’s birthday! Born in 1862, this writer and philanthropist was also the first female Pulitzer Prize winner for Literature, back in 1921.
I have an excerpt from her short story, The Hermit and the Wild Woman (originally published in 1908), here, for your listening delights! Enjoy and have some cake in Edith’s honor!
