Cypress Lawn’s Book Club

WishYouWereHere-cover-FINAL-600x900Colma’s lovely Cypress Lawn Memorial Park is trying something new:  a book club!  The club idea is so new that they don’t have it listed on the Heritage Foundation’s website yet, but the first two books were chosen at the club’s first meeting earlier this month.  I’m honored to say that Wish You Were Here: Adventures in Cemetery Travel is one of them.

Even if you’re not close enough to attend, you can still read along with us. The schedule so far:

April 9: Antebellum & Civil War San Francisco by Monika Trobits

May 21: Wish You Were Here: Adventures in Cemetery Travel

The book club will meet at 11 a.m. in Cypress Lawn’s Reception Center at 1370 El Camino Real, Colma, California. If you’d like more information, please contact Terry Hamburg.

Future books will range from autobiographies and novels written by people interred at Cypress Lawn and may include more cemetery history or history of the San Francisco Bay Area.  When possible, the book club will visit the appropriate grave sites.

I’ve never been a part of a book club, so I’m very much looking forward to this.

Here’s a taste of Wish You Were Here:
