Wolf's Head Books Closing


Image as appeared with Sunshine Slate article


The NGS conference is a great place to meet some of the most fascinating people.  One of those I met in 2009 was Harvey Wolf of Wolf’s Head Books.  For the 2009 conference I was one of the people responsible for the vendor area.  Harvey was a bright spot amongst the requests for power, services, tables, chairs, complaints and much more!

We talked about food!  Specifically barbecue!  He was polling around the vendor area for those of us living in Raleigh to figure out which place had the best barbecue so he could go eat there!  Though he didn’t think the local establishment he tried lived up to the hype, he was the one person I looked forward to talking with each day!  He made sitting at my table “fun” for the duration of the conference.

I was sad to learn, less than a year later, that Harvey had died.  Read his obituary here.

And, now, I’ve learned that Wolf’s Head Books is closing. Read the Sunshine Slate article.

Some people just touch your life and Harvey was one of them!  His energy, passion and enthusiasm will not be forgotten.
