Session Description: In this season of All Souls Day, our thoughts are naturally drawn to cemeteries and burial sites. These sites of memory are everywhere in our American landscape-in fact so common as to be often overlooked. Yet cemeteries are always saturated with meaning. Join essayist and poet James Silas Rogers as he shares fresh ideas about the deep meanings of memory, remembrance and sacred space - these landscapes of memory.
