Cape Cod Cemeteries - TONIGHT!

Wednesday, October 29 at 7:00 pm

Nancy Shoemaker joins us for a pre-Halloween treat. Come discover peaceful places that have no admission fee - for the living anyway! Nancy will lead our audience on a virtual (slideshow) tour of Cape Cod's final resting places from Truro to Falmouth - and our audience won't leave the comfort of Dennis Public Library. You'll learn a lot of history, with a little humor thrown in for fun. Get a view of various stone carvers' works and discover how to date a cemetery by its stones. Headstones on the Cape span the centuries, with a few dating, amazingly, from the 1600s. You’ll enjoy contemplating these unique works of art. 

October Meeting Room Artist - Elinor Freedman

Reception, Thursday, October 23 from 5:00-7:00 pm

Elinor Freedman is an artist who relocated from north of Boston to East Dennis where she is inspired by the beauty of the landscape and creative energy of fellow artists. 

While Ellie has explored a variety of mediums, she is drawn to the vibrancy and immediacy of working with pastels, to which she has focused her current work. For more information about the paintings on display at the library, contact Ellie at elinorafreedman@gmail.com
