Birthday: John Newbery

John Newbery


Birth: July 19, 1713

It’s his 245th birthday!
You know him because – he was the one that the Newberry award is named after! He’s beloved because he was the first publisher and seller of children’s books. The Newberry Award is given to exceptional children’s books. (not sure if above picture is him...but I think so)
