Live at San Francisco’s lovely Columbarium

On October 27 at 6 p.m., I’ll be joining Beth Winegarner, author of San Francisco’s Forgotten Cemeteries, at the lovely, historic San Francisco Columbarium, to talk about why we love cemeteries.

I haven’t met Beth in person yet, but we are kindred spirits. Our conversation will touch on cemeteries we’ve visited, places we’d still like to go, and why both of us ended up in a city that tore out its cemeteries in the 1940s.

Tickets are free, but going fast. You can RSVP at Eventbrite.

Beth and I will both have books to sell, so if you’d like to see all the beautiful photographs in Death’s Garden Revisited or snag a copy of 199 Cemeteries to See Before You Die in its original black & gold edition (before it’s reprinted next year), this is your chance. Come do your holiday shopping!

  1. Wish I could be there! What a great setting for such a discussion! I discovered it by accident years ago while visiting my son. We found it by accident – I think we were looking for a liquor store to buy wine for dinner. We loved it!
