Dead People of Illinois
with John Lynn
October 22, 2020
6:00pm - 7:30pm
Dead people — you can’t live with them, and you can’t live without them.
Searching for dead people in all the right places, this ”underground” presentation explores hundreds of Illinois cemeteries to find interesting graves and headstones, intriguing lives and deaths, and lots and plots of funny names. It’s an opportunity for mortals to not only whistle past the graveyard, but to pause and enjoy the oddities of life and death while we're still on the right side of history. Warning: grave subject matter. Expiration date: inevitable. Services: pending.
Join John Lynn and DPL on this virtual trip around Illinois cemeteries, including Decatur's own Greenwood Cemetery. Register your email and we'll send a Zoom link the week of the event.
Thanks to the Friends of the Decatur Public Library for funding this presentation.
