For more than three decades, Margaret Mock has been one of the University of Mary Washington’s central characters. At the end of this month, she’s closing the book and heading into a happily-ever-after retirement.

We want to celebrate Margaret, the UMW Bookstore’s trade book specialist, and give her a warm send-off. Please check out her reception, to be held in The Bookstore at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 19.

Previously a key staff member in the University Relations office, Margaret has worked in The Bookstore for the past nine years. She has become a fixture at Great Lives lectures and other book-signings around campus and around town. She has led the UMW Book Club, and she has been involved in literary collaborations with the Central Rappahannock Regional Library.

We wish her well as she begins a new chapter.
