Portland Author Casey Jarman to Read from Death: An Oral History

January 28, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

On January 28th at 2:00 p.m., Casey Jarman will read from his book Death: An Oral History.  A group conversation will follow the reading.
In this illuminating collection of oral-history style interviews, Casey Jarman talks to a funeral industry watchdog about the (often shady) history of the death trade; and he gets to know his own grandparents, posthumously. These are stories of loss, rebuilding, wonder, and wild speculation featuring everyone from philosophers to former death row wardens and hospice volunteers
