Mark Your Calendars: DWJ March

Who: Organized by Kristen M. of We Be Reading with contributions by many others

What: A month-long celebration of all things Diana Wynne Jones

When: March, every year since 2012


Why: Jenny of Reading the End hosted a Diana Wynne Jones Week in August 2010 which was a big success. Sadly, Diana passed away the next year in March of 2011. So, when the first anniversary of her death came around, Kristen decided to resurrect the dedicated week, make it a month instead, and spend all of March celebrating Diana’s life and work rather than solely mourning her passing.

The events and features vary each year to keep it fun and have included daily prompts, guest posts, read-alongs, watch-alongs and giveaways. The 4th Annual DWJ March will begin on … March 1, 2015! All fans (and even those new to DWJ) are welcome to join and participate as much or as little as they can. Details will go up on the blog and tumblr in February.
