Joe was a supporter of PS by distributing the magazine at his store since we started 6 years ago. We are very sorry to hear about the loss to the local literary community, and our condolences go out to his friends and family.
He will be sorely missed, but never forgotten. We all pray he’s in a better place now, reading a “Joe Pick”, and making recommendations to all that are with him. Rest In Peace, Joe.
Arrangements for a memorial service are pending. We will post themtime and place as soon as they are finalized. Joe Drabyak, bookseller extraordinaire, past President of the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association, friend and mentor to many, sadly passed away on August 27th, 2010.
The person I spoke to at CCBMC said memories of and tributes to Joe Drabyak via email for possible future posting on his FACEBOOK page and for a keepsake book. You can e-mail these to firstname.lastname@example.org
