The rule of simplicity that works so well in life also works great after
death. Many families are now opting for burial shrouds instead of
caskets to bury loved ones, asserting greater creative control over the
aesthetics of the traditional American funeral. Join death educator Amy
Cunningham for an engaging discussion of how shrouds and garments have
been used for over a millennia in cultures across the globe. This talk
is free. Reservations are recommended.
