Book Event – Southern Arizona Cemeteries
October 25, 2014 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 am$2 – $7.50
In any quest to understand an area as diverse as Arizona, there is no better way than taking a journey to the grave sites of its pioneers and observing the style whereby they made their journey from this world. Join writer Jane Eppinga for a tour of sites as simple as a cross or a shrine by the side of a road or as large as Tucson’s Evergreen Cemetery, or as culturally rich as our own Tubac Cementery [sic]. We’ll hear about the graves of governors, sheriffs, gunfighters, business owners, soldiers, schoolteachers, sports figures, madams, miners, and many others from all walks of life. Jane’s book has images of the deceased and brief bios are included where possible. The epitaphs, symbols, and expressions of grief on the graves provide insightful glimpses into Arizona’s pioneer past. $7.50 fee includes admission to the Park.
