It might seem like a strange thing to do, but City of Sydney Historian Dr Lisa Murray compares a visit to a cemetery to visiting a sculpture park or museum and encourages everyone to visit cemeteries like they visit their local park.
Lisa will talk about her new book, Sydney Cemeteries: A Field Guide, and tell us some of the strange and interesting stories of many of Sydney’s cemeteries and the people buried there. The ultimate handbook – from crowded inner-city plots to spacious burial grounds in semi-rural spots. Cemeteries are not simply places for the dead – they are designed for the living.
