Writer and undertaker Thomas Lynch will speak at the Columbus Public Library tonight. It's the first of his two local presentations.
Lynch, whose work has appeared in sources like The Atlantic and The New York Times, is known largely for material that addresses emotions that accompany the end of life.
He’s been a funeral director in Michigan since 1974.
While in Columbus, Lynch will present a poetry reading tonight and keynote speech on Tuesday. Both events are free and start at 7 p.m. at the Columbus Public Library, 3000 Macon Road. His work will be on sale both nights, and Lynch will sign copies.
The events are part of the VistaCare Hospice Foundation End-of-Life Lecture Series, sponsored by the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries, the VistaCare Hospice Foundation and St. Francis Hospital.
