Mariah Stewart asked MSW to post the following, considering we discussed fabulous booksellers on Tuesday. This gentleman will certainly be missed:
Joe Drabyak, bookseller extraordinaire, past President of the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association, friend and mentor to many, sadly passed away on August 27th, 2010. He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. We all pray he’s in a better place now, reading a “Joe Pick”, and making recommendations to all that are with him. Rest In Peace, Joe.
Arrangements for a memorial service are pending. We will post the time and place as soon as they are finalized.
In happier news, we also have some winners for the week.
