Program Description


“Dead people of Illinois,” other-world online travelogue hosted by John Lynn, photographer and world traveler.   

Searching for dead people in all the right places, this “underground” presentation of narrative and photos explores hundreds of Illinois cemeteries to find interesting graves and headstones, intriguing lives and deaths, and lots and plots of funny names. It’s an opportunity for mortals to not only whistle past the graveyard but to pause and enjoy the oddities of life and death while we’re still on the right side of history.
