A memorial ceremony for Judith Appelbaum, the author, book marketer, editor and book industry expert who died July 25, will be held on Saturday, September 22, 3-5 p.m., at the Hudson Guild Elliott Center, Dan Carpenter Room, 441 W. 26th Street, in New York City. The memorial will begin with a program where a few family, friends and colleagues will speak. Light refreshments will follow.
To honor someone who helped so many books reach so many readers, guests are encouraged to bring a new or gently used copy of a favorite book to leave for someone else to take and enjoy.
Anyone wishing to make a donation in her memory may contribute to United Neighborhood Houses or the Sister District Project, or to a cause or charity of choice.
Please RSVP here by September 14.
