Frances Hodgson Burnett’s birthday
Originally shared by Ed Pearce
English-American novelist and playwright Frances Hodgson Burnett was born on November 24, 1849.
When the younger son of Frances Hodgson Burnett, Vivian, clamored for something for little boys to read, Frances wrote Little Lord Fauntleroy and modeled the main character after him. Mrs. Burnett found inspiration for the character in Vivian’s blonde curls and Oscar Wilde’s style of dress.
