So it is in that ongoing spirit of gratitude and homage that we pause from politics, LGBT rights, and all other whatnot to wish everyone a Happy Towel Day 2018
Towel Day is celebrated every year on 25 May as a tribute to the Adams by his fans. Towels, as some of you may well know, play an important role in Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
While best known for his Hitchhiker's books Adams, aside from being a brilliant comedy writer, was truly of the great thinkers of our age. and had a passion for humanity. So on this Towel Day we remember Douglas, and in this age of the insane reality show that seems to be our world in 2018 , recall his best bit of advice. Printed in the large and now famously friendly letters on the cover of the "Guide"...
The film offers a realistic look at a real live human being from the points of view of those who knew him best. Interviews with Adams' early teachers and comedy partners and friends.
The commemoration was first held May 25th, 2001, two weeks after Adams' death on May 11th.
