Carole Beu: Requesting your anecdotes about Paul Greenberg

Dear Book Trade Friends,

I recently flew to Palmerston North for the day to visit Paul Greenberg who, in between bouts of pain, was cheerfully planning his funeral. He asked if I would speak & he mentioned what Anna Aplin did for John McIntyre – collating anecdotes, jokes & memories from throughout the book trade, to be read at his funeral.

So I am asking you to do this for Paul NOW.  If I can collate your thoughts NOW, I will be able to send them to Paul for Christmas, so he can enjoy what is going to be read out about him at his funeral.
Please email thoughts, tributes, memories, tall stories, jokes etc to

by 5pm next Friday 22 December.


Thank you to you all.

Carole Beu
