Understanding Death

Linda isn’t always free to come to my talks. But she was last night when I spoke at the Bernards Township Library, Basking Ridge, NJ.  My “official” photographer, she took this photograph of my silhouettee against the slide of the cover of the recent reissue of my book Corpses, Coffins, and Crypts: A History of Burial. She took it as I was reading my words: “Understanding death doesn’t necessarily take away our anxieties or fears about our own death, or our sadness about other people’s deaths, but it does help us find way to continue on with our lives.”
