Roald Dahl Day
From Wikipedia: Born in Llandaff, Cardiff, to Norwegian parents, Roald Dahl is known as one of the world’s best-selling authors. In 2008 The Times placed Dahl sixteenth on its list of “The 50 greatest British writers since 1945″. His short stories are known for their unexpected endings, and his children’s books for their unsentimental, often very dark humour. Some of his notable works include James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, George’s Marvellous Medicine, Fantastic Mr Fox, Matilda, The Witches, and The Big Friendly Giant. Roald Dahl Day is celebrated every year on 13th September.
