A fairly momentous event in the history of literature and theatre.
What might have happened in 1599 do you think, of interest to literature types? No ideas?
Well, today, 408 years ago today that is, the Globe Theatre (the original one) opened for business. You can visit the RL rebuild, and although I've not seen it, there's a version coming to SL as well I believe - see it's vaguely relevant to both bits of the Literature Alive! manifesto.
