Verso Book Loft
20 Jay St., Suite 1010
F to York Street or A/C to High Street
From 3–5pm, join us for a memorial and remembrance of our friend and comrade, Aaron Hess. There will be short readings, remembrances, and music to celebrate his life and contributions. If you would like to attend the memorial, please RSVP below.
We will be compiling a book of remembrances for his family following the memorial. If you would like to submit a story, poem, quote, song, or anything that remind you of Aaron’s life and contributions, you can do so here or at the memorial.
Reception Book Sale
Following the memorial, there will be an informal reception from 5:30pm–8pm. All are welcome. As part of the reception we will be redistributing Aaron’s expansive library of books. Aaron was a voracious reader and was always quick to inspire others with the same passion for what he had learned. In his memory (and with the support of his family) we will be selling books to help raise money for a publishing imprint in Aaron’s honor. We encourage everyone, even if they didn’t know Aaron well, to join us at the reception and book sale and share in Aaron’s gifts.
You can also donate directly to the memorial fund by going here and selecting “Aaron Hess Memorial Fund” in the section marked: “I want my donation to be designated toward”
