The Mercer community will have the chance to honor Anya Silver, Mercer professor, poet and Guggenheim Fellow who passed away this summer, in a special service Sept. 9 at 2 p.m.

The service will be held in Willingham Auditorium and will consist of poetry readings and the sharing of stories and music that Silver loved and held dear.

According to the Facebook event, guests will “share in the joy of knowing her and the grief of missing her.”

Silver passed away Aug. 6. She is survived by her son Noah, her husband Andrew, her sister and her mother.

Silver’s wishes were that instead of bringing flowers to the service, people make donations to help fund her son’s education. Donations can be made online by following the link on the Facebook event or by sending a check.

Over 165 people from all over the country – including family, friends, colleagues and former students – will attend the service, according to the Facebook event.

Attendees include those who knew Silver and want to show support towards her and give strength to all of those who love her.

All are welcome to attend the service held for Anya Silver and gather together to honor her memory.
