Tomorrow is the birthday of the American novelist, short story writer and playwright Sinclair Lewis, born February 7, 1885. A native of Minnesota, he was the author of more than twenty novels, including Main Street, Babbitt, Elmer Gantry and It Can’t Happen Here. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1930, becoming the first writer from the U.S. to be so honored.
