Did you know…

… that today is Catch 22 Day? This day honors the 1929 birthday of Candida Donadio, the literary agent who brought Joseph Heller’s first novel “Catch 22” to the publishing world. Originally titled “Catch 18,” the novel had to be retitled before being published to avoid confusion with Leon Uris’s new novel, Mila 18. Donadio selected the number 22 based on her October 22 birthday.
