I just heard from Anne's daughter Jenny that there will be a memorial gathering this Sunday, November 21, at the LeConte School Auditorium, 2241 Russell Street, Berkeley. Jenny says, "This is an informal gathering for local folks (although some, like Anne's sister Ethel, are coming from afar), an opportunity to speak about Anne's meaning in our lives. It's also a chance for us to record these spoken thoughts for Anne's beloved granddaughters, Sydney and Toby (and others who can't attend because of distance or conflicts)."
The library profession will remember Anne at a memorial scheduled for Sunday, January 16, 2005, at the American Library Association Conference in Boston. You can get the details from Suzanne Calpestri, [email protected] .
The 2005 Berkeley Library Foundation Dinner, scheduled for February 12, will be dedicated to Anne's memory. Details will be forthcoming on the Foundation web site . Of this event, Jenny says, "This is a beautiful, classy event at which you sit at a table with an author-luminary, but BE WARNED: this event is EXPENSIVE and it SELLS OUT."
