HUDSON — On Wednesday, Nov. 16 at 11 a.m., Stair Galleries in Hudson will auction off items from the estate of Joan Didion, including furniture, fine art, books and ephemera. Didion died last December at her Upper East Side home from complications of Parkinson’s disease. She was 87.
The catalog for “An American Icon: Property from the Collection of Joan Didion” contains 224 lots. The collection is available for viewing daily (except Sundays) through Nov. 15 at 549 Warren St. in Hudson. Proceeds from the sale will benefit patient care and research of Parkinson’s and other movement disorders at Columbia University and a Sacramento City College scholarship for women in literature. This collection is separate from the archive of Joan Didion and John Gregory Dunne, her writer husband, who died in 2003.
