Grave Sites of Some Famous Writers

Yeats_Grave_Drumcliff-1240x930

Is there a booklover out there who hasn’t visited the grave of at least one favorite writer? Because I’m guessing there are more than a few booklovers out there who have visited a lot more than one of these graves.

In any case, these photos and stories posted by LitHub are fascinating. And there are 75 of them!

    Speaking of Langston Hughes….

    went to a temporary Exhibition today at the Harn Museum of Modern Art here in Gainesville and discovered Jacob Lawrence, who was invited at age 24 by Mr. Hughes to illustrate his book of poetry about the Great Migration of African-Americans to the North and West, *One Way Ticket*. Lawrence’s 60-piece story-art of the Great Migration is shown here: http://lawrencemigration.phillipscollection.org/the-migration-series

    Another story-art, the story of the Reverend John Brown and Harper’s Ferry, includes 22 prints, and is shown here: https://www.davidsongalleries.com/artists/modern/jacob-lawrence/the-legend-of-john-brown/

    I really like his work.

    That IS interesting! While I was familiar with most of the writers, there were a few with whom I was unfamiliar.
