The theme for today's Sunday stamps is writers and composers.
I have two writers to share.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862) was an American naturalist, writer, poet and philosopher. One of his most famous books is Walden, written during his time living at Walden Pond in Massachusetts.
The stamp was issued as a forever stamp in 2017, the two hundredth anniversary of the year of his birth.
Ursula K Le Guin (1929-2018) was an American writer best known for her science fiction works, although she was also an accomplished poet, essayist and author in other genres. The first book in her Wizard of Earthsea series, telling the story of Ged as he starts his journey with magic by attending a school for wizards, was published in 1968.
Le Guin's novels The Left Hand of Darkness (1969) and The Dispossessed (1974) both won the Hugo and Nebula awards - the first woman to do so.
The stamp was issued as part of the literary arts series in 2021 at the three ounce rate (currently 98c).
