The stars aligned in 2019, with the 200th anniversary of Washington Irving’s story, the seventieth anniversary of Disney’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and the twentieth anniversary of Tim Burton’s Sleepy Hollow . . .
Washington Irving’s short story “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” was published serially in 1820 as part of The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. The book cemented Irving’s place in American literature and quite literally placed Sleepy Hollow, New York on the map.
