Children of the Days
A Calendar of Human HistoryUnknown - 2013
Each entry in this calendar resurrects heroes and heroines who have fallen off the historical map. Discover the Brazilians who held a smooch in to protest a dictatorship that banned kisses and learn of the day Mexico invaded the United States, the sacrilegious women who had the effrontery to marry each other in a church in 1901 and Abdul Kassem Ismael, the grand vizier of Persia, who kept books safe from war by creating a walking library of 117,000 books aboard four hundred camels.
