Join U.N.I. Associate Professor of History, Tom Connors, as he digs for the truth to uncover how writers in this period became national celebrities, cemeteries became tourist attractions, and American sculpture reached a golden age.  The most celebrated authors knew their graves would attract pilgrims and made careful plans to greet their arrival. 

This program is free to the public and was made possible by the Friends of the Cedar Falls Public Library.
