The University Bookman

A Tribute to Gerald Russello on his First Anniversary

Last year, the world of letters lost one of its most energetic, cheerful, and gregarious contributors: Gerald Russello, longtime editor of The University Bookman (2005–2021). Please join us on Monday, November 14, 2022, for a night of fellowship as the Russell Kirk Center honors Gerald’s memory and unveils its plans to carry forward his legacy in the years to come. Additionally, John Emmet Clarke, Editor-in-Chief of Cluny Media, will give the keynote address entitled “Take and Read, Lest You Forget: The Enduring Value of Old Books.” Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. and will be held at Regis High School, 55 E 84th St, New York, NY. (Entrance at 60 East 85th Street). The event will be live streamed for those who cannot attend in person beginning at 6:45pm ET here. (Please note that there is no pre-registration required and this link will be non-functional until the time of the event.)

For those who can’t attend in person, but would still like to give a gift in Gerald’s honor, please visit our donate page and select, “Support the University Bookman.”
