Mervyn Peake Day
Founded by our own Kerstin Hall, this day aims to honor the English writer, poet and illustrator. Hall says that the day was founded because “he is really awesome and deserves a day” citing his depiction of gender and overall writing style. Peake is most famous for his Gormenghast books but released over twenty books, some even well past his death in 1968. You can check out his official website here.
