Hello cobblers!

Today we celebrate the work of Virginia Woolf. One of my all time favorite short stories of Woolf’s is “The New Dress”.

To accompany your reading, check out the International Virginia Woolf Society’s website.

Also, Brain Pickings has the only known recording of Woolf’s voice, as well as the full audio transcript: “On Craftsmanship: The Only Surviving of Virginia Woolf’s Voice, 1937”.

Finally, if your into a more morbid kind of fun, check out the digital reprinting of Woolf’s obituary from The New York Times circa 1941: “Virginia Woolf Believed Dead”.

Read on, my friends.
