April 2nd marked the bicentennial of the birth of Hans Christian Andersen, arguably one of the most prolific writers of fairy tales in history.
I've been a fan since my youth after seeing the movie starring Danny Kaye, and realizing this was a story about the guy who wrote all those stories I was so familiar with as a child.
There's a great article on the NPR website about the event, along with an audio file that includes a retelling of two Andersen tales.
Creative thinking at its best.
