Dieter Eduard Zimmer, essayist, editor, translator, an intellectually “incorruptible” “Renaissance man” (I quote from the German Wikipedia) and among much else Nabokov’s most important translator, editor, and longest-serving scholar, has died in Berlin on June 19, 2020, aged 85.

This year's Nabokov Readings in St. Petersburg, Russia, will feature an open online interview with Brian Boyd. To submit a question for an online event scheduled to take place on July 3, please follow this link. The Russian GoogleDocs form linked here prompts you to enter a valid email address and type in your question (note: the separate blank field for questions is mislabeled "your answer" at the time of this post's publication).
Princeton University Press has issued a cheap ($17.95, cheap by Princeton standards) paperback of volume 1 of the revised (1975) Nabokov translation of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin, in their new Princeton Classics series, aimed at students; pagination, except for the front matter, remains the same as in previous editions. There is a new foreword by me.
