One Book, One Michiana City Cemetery Tour: Grave-robbing

Where did Dr. Frankenstein get the body parts to build his monster? Not in South Bend, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t have our own history of grave-robbing. In conjunction with One Book, One Michiana’s 2014 book selection of Frankenstein, Travis Childs will lead a tour of South Bend’s City Cemetery to reveal the sordid component of our past. Meet at the cemetery’s entrance at West Colfax and Elm Streets. This tour requires a fair amount of walking over uneven ground. No pets, please. Parking is limited. *Parental discretion advised.
When: Sat April 26 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
