September … roll your Rs. This is biodiversity month in Australia, and tourism month in South Africa, and mes de la patria in Mexico. It has taken some time but we are learning how to use the Oxford comma.

September 8 is International Literacy Day which we celebrate efforts of inspired digital literacy, particularly those that conserve Indigenous languages.

September 27 is World Tourism Day followed a day later by the International Day for Universal Access to Information.

First Monday in September is Labor Day in the USA and considered the traditional end of summer holiday. Also in the USA, #HispanicHeritageMonth starts mid-September and continues through mid-October.
