A 4th grade student came across The Velveteen Rabbit and checked it out. I
mentioned its classic status and discovered it was published 1922, so at
some point in 2022 might anyone be doing something to honor the occasion?

Margery Williams Bianco was born 22 July 1881 in London, England and died 4
September 1944 in New York City, United States. One of those days could be
a good day for marking the date. National Bunny Day is just past us, 2022's
wlll be Sept 24, https://nationaltoday.com/national-bunny-day/ and
https://rabbit.org/hrs-info/worldrabbitday.html for starters.

Hmm, Margery was British and the UK has a Rabbit Awareness Week near her
birthday: 2021's ran from 28 June to 4 July 2021,
https://www.pdsa.org.uk/get-involved/our-campaigns/rabbit-awareness-week

I don't know what I'll do or when, but for a nice round big number
birthday, it seems right to do _something_.

Cheers,
