SA4QE 2017 - Ra McGuire - Los Cabos, Mexico

Russ’s naming day fell on a holiday for me so, although I live in White Rock BC Canada, my yellow paper was left in Los Cabos Mexico, at the Marriott resort where I’m staying.

The quote seemed appropriate considering the 2017 political winds.

Darrell Emmel, author of "Farring Seakert Sailor", argues that Russell Hoban's complex novel "Riddley Walker" raises many unanswered questions.

Ron Robinson introduces "Farring Seakert Sailor: Unriddling Riddley Walker", Darrell Emmel’s new 444-page reading of Russell Hoban's classic 1980 novel.

SA4QE 2016 - Oliver Newman - Oxford, United Kingdom

My chosen quotation for this year's sA4qe is from the Hoban novel which I had surely already distributed most widely during 2015: 'Riddley Walker' ... I had circulated a couple of spare copies amongst friends on various occasions this year (some of the older picador editions I'd accrued from charity shops over the years) - I'd also recommended the novel to several more friends and colleagues in recent months.

SA4QE 2016 - Ra McGuire - White Rock BC, Canada

The weather here on the west coast of Canada was once again inclement on Russell Hoban's naming day. I arrived at a grey and windy White Rock Beach with my yellow paper, some tape and a pocket full of tacks. I had a location planned - at a tourist lookout above the beach and pier - but when I arrived at the beach, the first thing I saw was a silent and still man with a briefcase, standing in front of the old train station, contemplating the bay in front of him.

SA4QE 2016 - Yvonne Studer - Zürich, Switzerland

Swamped with end-of-term chores as always at this time of year, I nevertheless enjoyed doing a bit of "fork-you-ating" in the morning. This time my quotations went to a few colleagues at my school who had been in a reading group with me last year and who were game when I invited them to read and discuss Riddley Walker with me. Mind you, they weren't English teachers but teachers of German, French, Italian, Latin and History! Some received a quotation from the book we'd read together, others were given a quotation from The Mouse and His Child, which I love very much too.
