Celebrating the life of a beloved BookCrosser

Last August, ResQgeek's daughter Becky (aka N-R-Jyzer) was struck and killed while riding her bicycle. We at BCinDC are organizing a memorial release on what would have been her 10th birthday: February 14, 2011.

Always giving of love and hugs, Becky is remembered as embodying the true spirit of Valentine's Day. The theme of our release in her honor is hugs, hearts, and Valentine's day. Becky loved Winnie-the-Pooh, so we will be releasing those and other children's books as well.

Date: February 14, 2011
Theme: Hugs, hearts, Valentine's Day, Winnie-the-Pooh, children's books
Release notes: Please include a link to the Becky's Hugs facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Beckys-Hugs/147053868666518) in the JE for the release.

If you are in the area, BCinDC is holding a release walk in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, at 7:00pm that evening. We will meet at La Madeleine at 500 King St. (at the corner of King and Pitt), then walk down King Street and up N. Union St. to end at Becky's tree in Founder's Park. Please let us know if you will be joining us so we know to wait for you.

Memorial labels are available from the Supply Store.

We hope you will join us in remembering Becky.

Editor's note: If you choose to participate in this Memorial Release, please consider posting your releases in the Memorial Release for Becky - Feb 14, 2011 thread in the Release Challenges forum.
