Tribute for Jacquie Baxter/ J. C. Sturm 1927 – 2009

Jacquie Baxter, also known as J.C. Sturm, was a poet and short story writer as well as a former staff member of Wellington City Libraries. Sadly, she passed away in December last year.

In memory of her enormous skill as a writer, her dedication to library service, and the lasting impression she left as a friend and colleague, we have set up a display in memory of her on the ground floor of the Central Library.

The display contains a tribute book and we encourage those who knew Jacquie, were touched by her work, or simply want to convey their condolences to her friends and family, to write a message in it.

If you cannot make it into the library to write in the book then you are most welcome to write a message as a comment on this blog post and library staff will make sure it is transcribed into the memorial book on your behalf.

You can read more about Jacquie’s life and achievements in our obituary for her or at the website of the New Zealand Book Council here .
