Memorial for Carol Emshwiller: 27 July 2019, 1-5pm, at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Ave, New York, New York 10003

Erroneously, the date was reported as 27 June in the first posting of this note. All my sleepiness.

Eve, Susan and Stoney Emshwiller have announced a memorial for their mother Carol, 
on Saturday, 27 July from at 1 PM – 5 PM
at Anthology Film Archives, 32 Second Ave, New York, New York 10003; (212) 505-5181

"Eve, Susan, and Stoney cordially invite you to join us for a memorial celebrating the life and work of our mom, Carol Emshwiller.

"During the ceremony we’ll be welcoming folks to share remembrances, recite a poem, sing a song, or read something appropriate, if so inclined.

"We hope you can make it, but even if you can’t: please spread the word about this event. If you think of someone missing from our guest list who you believe would be interested in the memorial, feel free to invite them (we’ve adjusted the settings of this Facebook Event so that anyone can add invitees). The more family members, friends, peers, editors, publishers, former students, fellow authors, and fans of her work, the better. Come one, come all!

"After the ceremony, we’ll offer a little nosh and humble snack or two at the same location. Maybe even a beverage. Nothing too fancy, or our mom would be ticked off about all the 'fuss' we’ve made and strike us down with a lightning bolt."

(Carol Emshwiller on Sweet Freedom)
