Mary Travers Memorial Set for Monday


Mary Travers, the lovely (a face and figure every bit as adorable as Tuesday Weld, said one of our more august colleagues) and committed Peter, Paul and Mary linchpin who died in September–from complications related to leukemia–will be remembered next Monday November 9 at Morningside Heights’ Riverside Church, according to the New York Times. Her erstwhile bandmates will be in the building; so will a suitably diverse and lefty coterie including Pete Seeger, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Moyers, John Kerry, and George McGovern. Travers was one of the good people of the last half century–those who knew her best will surely attest to this fact next week. Tickets will be available to the public the day of the event, and public is very much invited to come.
