Dear Readers of TheNabokovian.org:

It is with great sadness that I post the message below from Alexey Filimonov informing us of the passing away of Boris Averin on January 4th of this new year. Boris Valentinovich will be sorely missed. Please also find below a poem written by Alexey commemorating Boris Valentinovich's life and contributions to the cultural life of St. Petersburg.

From Alexey Filimonov:

К сожалению, для нас  в Петербурге год начался с трагической вести, 4 января ушел из жизни набоковед Борис Аверин.
