Five Fascinating Facts about Jack London

Interesting Literature

Fun interesting facts about Jack London, author of White Fang and The Call of the Wild

1. Jack London’s San Francisco home has a collection of some of the 600 rejections he received before he sold a single story. Born John Griffith Chaney in 1876, Jack London read voraciously as a youth, and amassed a library of some 15,000 volumes which he described as ‘the tools of my trade’.

That was because the teachers and librarians were hoping I would inspire the students to become (more) passionate about reading. Since I’m super passionate about all things reading and writing related, I had a lot of fun with that particular task, and I want to share some of the recommendations I gave with you here (as well as some others that I didn’t give).

These are in no particular order, by the way…

5. The Ranger’s Apprentice series by John Flanagan:

6. The Hunger Games trilogy by…
