Well, as Emmae Gibson points out, Russ was born in 1925, so - on 4 February, the day of SA4QE*, when people remember him (now and in his mortal years) - it will be Hoban at 96.
I suggest that we respond withGnome at her**, since time is an illusion, and - as Russ himself, at least twice, said in print*** - Nothing is forever. [Nothing, except love, as the waves and particles of Russ' novel Pilgermann, as Emmae has reminded me, suggest... ?]
The birthday of novelist Russell Hoban, who has also written and / or illustrated children's books, such as Jim's Lion, The Mouse and his Child, or 'the Frances books' (e.g. Bread and Jam for Frances) :https://t.co/cbJGdx1fnR#CelebrateHobanAt95 pic.twitter.com/LTzY3skdOb— THE AGENT APSLEY #ScrapUniversalCredit #JC4PM2019 (@THEAGENTAPSLEY) January 20, 2021
* The Slickman A4 Quotation Event, named after its initiator, Diana Slickman, and during which [on (or for ?) 4 February] a distribution of quotations from the works of Russ is made.
Depending on the assiduity of the participants, the 4ations (as they are called) are usually shared via http://www.russellhoban.org/sa4qe, on or after that date.
