One hundred years ago, the Armory Show in New York shocked the art world with works by Marcel Duchamp and others.

Eighty-five years ago, William Faulkner wrote a children’s book (which is a strange concept).

Fifty years ago, the Nobel Prize committee shocked the literature world by giving the award to John Steinbeck.

A year ago, the owner of the Monkey’s Paw in Toronto thought up the Bibliomat as a way to distribute unneeded books.

And now, China is planning to create a music valley out of whole cloth (well, whole grass, really).

Weird world, isn’t it?
