The memorial, which is open to the public, both women and men, is being held at at Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater, 1470 Nursery Road in Clearwater. Donations welcome, but not required.

In an email meant to be publicly circulated, Selena writes: "Merlin Stone was an artist, art historian, author, and visionary feminist. She focused attention on Goddess reverence of the ancient past. She gathered together Goddess imagery, symbols, and lore from many peoples and shared with others through her books, radio appearances, and other endeavors. She inspired the emergence of multicultural Goddess spirituality in contemporary times. Her memorial is an wonderful opportunity to celebrate Merlin Stone, her works, her life, and her legacy"

Selena will be among Merlin's friends and colleagues speaking at the memorial. Other speakers include Z Budapest, Ruth Barrett, Barbara Walker, Susun Weed, and Margot Adler. The memorial will also include music by Hecate's Wheel, Emmet Bondurant, and Ruth Barrett.

The memorial, organized by Z Budapest and the Women's Spirituality Forum, has the support of Merlin's family, Selena writes. It is part of the "In Search of Merlin Stone" project.
