I am pleased to introduce you to JM Barrie, or Sir James Matthew Barrie. Living May 9, 1860 and passing on June 19, 1937. Barrie was a world renowned novelist and playwright best known for his play A Lady’s Shoe….Just kidding, he wrote frickin Peter Pan. One of the most magical and beloved children’s stories, Peter Pan brought Barrie world wide love and acclaim. Before his death, Barrie made sure the story would positively affect children for decades to come by donating the rights to Peter Pan to the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children in London.
Joining me in getting to know JM Barrie just a little bit better.
