Nook Day is growing
Event seeks to comfort all people dealing with losses
By BEN R. WILLIAMS - Bulletin Staff Writer
After five years, Nook Day has grown to be about something more than its namesake.
The event is organized by Mable Campbell, whose 12-year-old grandson, Antionne Diago Hairston Jr. — known to his friends and family as Nook — died in November 2009.
“This is our fifth annual celebration since he departed from this world,” Campbell said. “Today is to be able to take a tragedy and turn it into something positive, not just for my family, but for the entire community. We try to empower and strengthen the lives of people so they can move forward after losing a loved one.”
