Book Discussion in Milwaukee with 'Badger Boneyards' Author Dennis McCann

Explore Wisconsin's cities of the dead with Dennis McCann, author of "Badger Boneyards: The Eternal Rest of the Story," Join McCann for a special Halloween week presentation at Boswell Book Company in Milwaukee, where he will reflect on the melancholy, humorous, tragic and universal stories waiting to be discovered in Wisconsin's cemeteries.

Guided by tips from readers, unusual epitaphs and well-worn stones, McCann unearths the intriguing and often long-forgotten histories of Wisconsinites' past. With accounts of Bayfield cemetery inhabitants disturbed by a raging flood, a woman whose tombstone names her murderer, and a boy who wouldn't tell a lie and paid the price, "Badger Boneyards" tells tales of war, families, calamity and community from burial grounds throughout the state.

Please note that this event was previously scheduled to be held at Forest Home Cemetary. The event date and time remain the same.

Books will be available for sale at this event, and the author will be on hand to sign copies.
