September brings us the first day of autumn. International Literacy Day takes place on the 8th, observed on the 9th and the celebration will continue throughout the month. This year, the International Reading Association (IRA) has adopted the theme “Invent Your Future.” Hispanic Heritage Month also takes place in September. International Day of Peace on the 21st provides an opportunity for individuals, organizations and nations to create practical acts of peace on a shared date. In 1889, Nintendo was founded, manufacturing playing cards. And, in the words of funny guy Groucho Marx, “My favourite poem is the one that starts ‘Thirty days hath September’ because it actually tells you something.”
