Carnegie Hall Memorial

Article excerpt

On April 9, 2008, approximately 2,400 family, friends and admirers gathered at Carnegie Hall for a three-hour tribute to Norman Mailer. The event was sponsored by Mailer's publisher of twenty-five years, Random House, and was hosted by Charlie Rose. Random House Publisher Gina Centrello welcomed the guests. The program was produced by Norris Church Mailer, Lawrence Schiller, Carol Schneider, and J. Michael Lennon, with able assistance from Donna Pedro Lennon and Maria Braeckel. The event included spoken tributes from twenty-five individuals, including twelve members of the Mailer family, and musical tributes from his wife, Norris Church Mailer; Mailer's son-in-law, Peter McEachern (trombone); and his daughter-in-law, Sasha Lazard (voice). In addition, there were photographic montages and video tributes. At the end of the program, the establishment of The Norman Mailer Writers Colony was announced by Sam Radin and Lawrence Schiller. Credits for visual tributes appear below; spoken tributes follow. The Mailer Review is grateful to the Mailer Family, Random House, and all the other participants for permission to reprint their tributes.
