Happy Towel Day, Reading Addicts!

In case you didn’t know, Towel Day is a celebration that happens every year on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams who died in May, 2001.

On this day, fans around the universe honour him by carrying a towel, reading his novels, and generally spreading the word about the great man.

Fans of Adams’ work, and in particular The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, started this celebration 2 weeks after Douglas died in 2001, and since then many of us have been honouring him in our own ways…

An Italian Orchestra- the Magister Espresso Orchestra– produced this beautiful video as a tribute to Adams, for Towel Day.
