Join Missouri Humanities and the Lebanon-Laclede County Library on Tuesday, July 23 at 6pm for "When Grief Becomes Beauty: The Rural Cemetery Movement in Nineteenth-Century America" with professor emeritus of history and nationally recognized scholar, Jeffrey Smith.
During the presentation, Smith explains how the Rural Cemetery Movement was something of a revolution in cemetery design--influencing the ways we see and think about not only burial sites in the US, but also parks and other public spaces. This illustrated talk will leave audiences understanding why it's more accurate to say parks "look a lot like historic cemeteries" than the other way around.
This event is FREE and recommended for adults and registration is not required. If you have questions, please call the library at (417)532-2148
