February 22, 2018 The Librarian 0

It’s been a busy February behind the scenes in the Library, so we weren’t able to do as much Women in Horror Month coverage/celebration as we would have liked, but we did get a chance to chat up one of our favourite authors, Loren Rhoads, who probably knows more about cemeteries and cemetery tourism than all of us combined. Need more persuasion? What if I told you she’s written Death’s Garden: Relationships with Cemeteries, 199 [READ MORE]
