Top 10 Tuesday - Authors I'd Invite for Thanksgiving

1. Jane Austen. If you've read my blog more than once I bet you could predict that one.

2. C.S. Lewis. He wasn't crazy about America ("That awful place") but I think he would enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.

3. Winston Churchill. Only problem I could see: he liked his alcohol and we're Temperance folk.

4. William Shakespeare. His insults would be much more colorful than our usual snark.

5. Agatha Christie

6. Dorothy Sayers

7. Ngaio Marsh

8. Arthur Conan Doyle

The four above could argue about the finer points of mystery writing.

9. Laura Ingalls Wilder and Almanzo Wilder. They could compare our feast to their favorite meals of the past. (Surely I'm not the only one who ends up hungry after reading Farmer Boy?)

10. J.R. R Tolkien. With both Tolkien and Lewis, it would be like a mini-gathering of the Inklings.

So, who which authors would you invite?

William Shakespeare would have been a great one to have at the table, wouldn't he? So many stories to tell!

Oh my, all the ones you listed, but my very favorite would be Nora Roberts.
