Lecture “In Death Remember’d”

Lecture “In Death Remember’d”

In Death Remember’d  presented by Vincent Luti 

In his new book, Vincent Luti focuses on an aspect of our history that has been largely overlooked; the 18th century Taunton River Basin School of Gravestone Carvers. This rich heritage of early American folk artifacts is a precious resource for scholars of all stripes, and something to be enjoyed by an appreciative public as well. The native work of this overlooked area now has its deserved place in the story of American folk art culture as evidenced in its early gravestones and their carvers. Mr. Luti is one of the most knowledgeable people in the world regarding the history of tombstone carvers in New England.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served at 6:30 pm with the talk to begin at 7 pm.
