Kate Sweeney 

When: Tue., May 6, 7:15-8 p.m. 2014
Price: Free
Hosted by Georgia Center for the Book. What happens when someone we know dies? In American Afterlife, Kate Sweeney weaves together a collective portrait of illuminating stories — of a funeral director, an obituary writer, even a Midwestern museum that takes us back in time to meet our death-obsessed Victorian progenitors — revealing something larger: a landscape that feels at once strange and familiar, one that’s by turns odd, tragic, poignant, and sometimes even funny. Sweeney reads from and signs copies of the book.
