While not a Death Salon event per se, there is a great free event the night before Death Salon in Los Angeles. Death Salon organizer Megan Rosenbloom will be interviewing “America’s funniest science writer” Mary Roach about all of her works as part of a USC Visions & Voices event, Thursday October 17 at 5:30 p.m. For the morbidly minded, Mary’s works Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife might be of particular interest. There will be a display of USC’s rare books related to the subjects of Mary’s books and she will be available for book signing.
The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are required and there are limited seats for non-USC affiliates. To RSVP click here.
Just a few weeks until Death Salon LA!
