GPL Speaker Series

The Greenfield Public Library's (GPL) First Wednesday Speaker Series features a different lecture on the first Wednesday of each month, in the building's LeVanway Meeting Room.  Topics range throughout the humanities, from gardening to art to science fiction, with special focus on topics of particular local interest.

This month's guests are The Gravestone Girls, who will take attendees on a "Welcome to the Graveyard" virtual tour, a presentation about New England cemetery art, history, and symbolism.   Audience members will "travel" from colonial burial grounds, through the rural cemetery movement of the 19th century, and into 21st century locations.  Using as much local content as possible, the tour examines why we have cemeteries and gravestones, why they look like they do, and how styles and art have evolved over almost 400 years.

This free event is open to the public and sponsored by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library.

Wed, 10/04/2017 - 6:00pm - 8:00pm
Greenfield Public Library, 402 Main Street, Greenfield, MA 01301
