Memorial Services for John Leonard, Ellen Miller

johnleonard-ellenmiller.jpgThe literary community was saddened last November by the death of essayist John Leonard. A memorial service has been planned for Monday, March 2, at 6:00 PM at Landmark on the Park (160 Central Park West); among those scheduled to join Leonard’s family in remembering his life and work are Toni Morrison, Victor Navasky, and Gloria Steinem.

Meanwhile, many of us are only just know learning of the death of Ellen Miller; the 41-year-old novelist (Like Being Killed) and creative writing teacher died of a heart attack on December 23. Her friends and family will hold a memorial service on Sunday, February 8, at NYU’s Lillian Vernon Creative Writers House (58 West 10th St.) at 4 p.m. Space is limited, and those who wish to attend are encouraged to RSVP with Stephanie Foster at smfostersays [at] yahoo [dot] com.
