It's not the most active day in the literary world currently, but we do have more than one literary death on this date in the 1960s.

Albert Camus, a Nobel Prize-winning novelist best known for L’Étranger (The Stranger) and La Chute (The Fall), died January 4, 1960.

T.S. Eliot, a poet whose famous works include “The Waste Land” and “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” died January 4, 1965.

In their honor, we've rounded up previous posts about them from our newswire.
