What are the odds

Tracey Chevalier has a new book out called Remarkable Creatures. Joan Thomas has a new book out called Curiosity, and they are both historical fiction based on the same remarkable English woman named Mary Anning. What are the odds of that happening? Of all the people to write about. I certainly wasn’t familiar with Anning, but I’ve learned that she was a leading paleontologist in Britain who never received the recognition she so richly deserved. And you know that little ditty “she sells sea shells by the sea shore” … well, it’s about Mary Anning. Interesting eh! Now, I just have to figure out which book to read.
