In tribute to the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the University Branch Library will have a Towel-Day Celebration on Saturday, May 25, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm, in Meeting Room 1 of the library.
Towel Day is an annual celebration in tribute to the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy book series. On this day, fans around the universe carry a towel to demonstrate their appreciation for the author and his books.
Library patrons are invited to tote a towel or wear a bathrobe (over regular clothes!) and enjoy a showing of the movie based on the novel.
In this science-fiction tale, the greatest adventure in the universe begins when the world ends. Earthling Arthur Dent learns that his planet is about to be demolished and his only chance for survival is to hitch a ride on a passing spacecraft. This movie is rated PG.
Light refreshments will be served.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the University Branch Library at 281-633-5100 or the library system’s Communications Office at 281-633-4734.
