In Honor of a Friend

My friend Rob was really something: funny, insightful, talented. He wrote literary fiction under his real name, Rob Levandoski, and mysteries as CR Corwin. If you haven’t read his Morgue Mama books, do yourself a favor and pick one up.

Rob died back in 2008, but now, there’s a way you can help honor his memory.

Rob taught fiction writing at the University of Akron and now, there’s a Robert C. Levandoski Endowed Writing Award.

You can donate online at:

http://www.uakron.edu/donate/

If you do, make sure you specify you’d like your donation to go the writing award.
Or you can contribute the old fashioned way by sending a check (and again, a note that you want your contribution to go to the writing award) to:

Tim R. DuFore
Department of Development
University of Akron
Akron, Ohio 44325-2603

I can’t think of a better way to honor CR’s memory. Well, except maybe to have a Reuben sandwich in his honor! (Rob always said his goal in life was to have a Reuben at every restaurant in America!)
