It is with joy and relief that I can finally announce a publisher and a publication date for my book that grew out of this cemetery project.
Death and Rebirth in a Southern City will be published by Johns Hopkins University Press in October 2020. I am grateful for the support of the press as well as the College of Humanities and Sciences at VCU among so many others who have made it possible. The book will be published in paperback upon its release, as it was written with non-academic audiences in mind. I am writing the acknowledgements section now, a daunting task given the number of folks who have helped along the way. Johns Hopkins has a great list in history as well as strengths in health and regional studies. We have not settled on a cover yet.
Fingers crossed for a happy landing in October, a good month for a cemetery release.
