短篇故事作者与小说家玛乔丽.金楠.劳林斯 (Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings) 出生

劳林斯在1920年代担任记者,她是女性担任记者的先驱。她曾服务于路易斯维尔信使报 (Louisville Courier-Journal) 罗彻斯特日报 (Rochester Journal) ,以及联合报刊资料供应社 (United Features Syndicate) 。在1928年时,她为了专心写小说,于是搬到靠近佛罗里达州盖恩司威尔 (Gainesville) 的横溪 (Cross Creek) 。而同名的横溪 (Cross Creek) 这本书也在1942年出版,内容就是描述劳林斯是如何迷恋佛罗里达乡村地方。劳林斯与横溪的亲密,一直到她在1953年以57岁年纪去世才停止。

Working as a journalist in the 1920s, Rawlings was a trailblazer for women in that field. She worked for the Louisville Courier-Journal, the Rochester Journal, and the United Features Syndicate. In 1928, she settled at Cross Creek, near Gainesville, Florida, in order to write fiction. Cross Creek, published in 1942, tells of her enchantment with this part of rural Florida. Her association with Cross Creek continued until her death in 1953 at the age of 57.
