Notably: No slight to Eudora Welty, whose birthday this also is (1909), but Ireland has a cultural doubleheader today with the birth anniversaries of Samuel Beckett (1906) and Seamus Heaney (1939), who won the Nobel in 1995. City Repertory Theatre in Palm Coast is staging Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot” starting April 29. Book tickets here. Today is also the anniversary of the beginning of the Lebanese Civil War in 1975. See: “April 13, 1975.”
Now this: Eudora Welty on Dick Cavett, from 1979.
