A Conversation with Caitlin Doughty
Online: Wednesday, November 16
Shelbyville Public Library is joining libraries across the state of Illinois to host award-winning author, Caitlin Doughty, mortician, bestselling author, and advocate for death acceptance. The event will be held virtually on Wednesday, November 16 at 7 pm. Caitlin Doughty is a mortician, advocate, and bête noire of the traditional funeral industry. Her educational webseries "Ask a Mortician" has been viewed almost 250 million times and her three books were New York Times bestsellers - Smoke Gets in Your Eyes, From Here to Eternity, and Will My Cat Eat My Eyeballs? She founded a Los Angeles funeral home as well as the funeral reform collective The Order of the Good Death, which spawned the death positive movement.
This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a new statewide collaboration among public libraries offering high-quality events. ILP is funded in part by a grant awarded by the Illinois State Library, a department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
