Writer's birthday today

'Stephen E Ambrose, writer of Band of Brothers, was a longtime professor, and many of the stories he wrote in his popular history books were ones he'd told over and over to his college students, trying hard to entertain them.

He said, 'There is nothing like standing before 50 students at 8:00 a.m. to start talking about an event that occurred 100 years ago, because the look on their faces is a challenge -- 'Let's see you keep me awake.' You learn what works and what doesn’t in a hurry.'

Thanks to the Writer's Almanac for the information
