Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12750 comments If the authors are on GR profile, wikipedia or BPL, no need to post here. I'll get them when the book is added.

Deedee | 1982 comments The next novel of Rebecca Serle, The Dinner List, will be published September 11, 2018. Her birthday is "1985" See: fantasticfiction.com Rebecca Serle (I'm thinking of this book as a starting point :) )


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12750 comments Thanks for this, Deedee.

Anika | 2063 comments Graeme Simsion, 1956: https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-en... (in this 2014 interview, he is 58; 2014-58=1956)

Antoine Laurain, 1972: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine... (yes, it's Wiki, but Wiki France...thought I'd put it here just in case)

Imbolo Mbue, 1981: https://www.vogue.com/article/imbolo-... (in paragraph 3 of this 2017 article it states that she is 36: 2017-36: 1981)

Robyn Schneider, 1986: http://www.robynschneider.com/bio/ (she was 31 when this web page was updated in 2017: 2017-31=1986)

Hope this is sufficient for birth year documentation! I scoured the internet to find these scant scraps...

Elizabeth (Alaska) | 12750 comments We won't use calculated dates, but I have library sources that say

Simsion is 1956
Laurain is 1972
Mbue is 1982 (this is the only one you have as incorrect)
Schneider is 1986

Anika | 2063 comments I can't find a birth year for A.J. Finn (a.k.a. Daniel Mallory) anywhere. Wondering if you have one up your sleeve (you have magical resources that I have yet to figure out!)...I have to read The Woman in the Window for my RL book club and am hoping to fit it in the subchallenge...

Voila! 1979

Several years ago, another member of this group pointed me to viaf.org and I use it when GR/Wikipedia don't include the information.

Rachel C | 0 comments The author spreadsheet gives Corrie ten Boom's birth year as 1901, but Goodreads and Wikipedia both have 1892. Can I assume the latter date is the correct one?

No. You should use 1892. Apparently there was an error with using a different source. We will correct our records.

Rachel C | 0 comments That was actually what I meant - I was using "latter" to refer to the second date that I'd mentioned, although I realise now that wasn't very clear! Thank you!

Ha! And I read it as "later" - had I read it correctly, I might have interpreted your question correctly. ;-)
