Joanna Russ in Hospice Following Strokes

It is always unfortunate to hear of someone experiencing a stroke–a neurological event that erases functions, memories, and eventually the self. It is particularly difficult to accept something so terrible happening to someone you respect a great deal. This is the now the case with Joanna Russ. By email to the feministsf email list, Ide Cyan shared a link to SF Site’s short report: Joanna Russ in Hospice. Apparently, she has endured “a series of strokes” and she is now in hospice care.

I have wrote on Joanna Russ’ scholarship in a previous post here.

UPDATE: I am afraid that Joanna Russ has passed away. More information here.
