Turi Becker has started a handy blog that will help librarians, teachers and book fans celebrate author birthdays.  Started in June, she lists the authors that were born on that day. 

For example, today’s entry has Anita Brookner, Robert Sheckley, and Sheri Tepper.  At the end of each list of birthdays, you can also see the authors who died on that day. 

Becker keeps the entries simple and offers a nice mix of genres and ages.  Give this one a look if you use authors’ birthdays at your library or school.
