Happy Pi Day

March 14 is National Pi Day! (named such because the date, 3-14, is the same as the first three digits in Pi, that endless mathematical decimal number that's near impossible to memorize). To celebrate, why not read Yann Martel's 2001 classic fabel Life of Pi, about a highly unusual young man who, following a deadly shipwreck, becomes stranded on a lifeboat with a 450 pound Bengal tiger. Or, if you want something more visual, take in the 2012 movie of the same name.

And, while you're at it, cut yourself a slice of your favorite pie!
