Our Own Brenda Rossini will have a "Gala" Discussion & Signing

Title: Graceland Cemetery in Chicago: A Sherlockian Midst the Tombstone

Author: Brenda Rossini

Date: July 8, 2018

Day: Sunday

Time: 2-4:00 PM

Brenda Rossini is renowned Chicago attorney and the local Matriarch of Chicago Sherlochians (or so I've said.) You are in for a marvelous presentation on one of the most elaborate cemeteries in Chicago and, maybe, the Nation. Ms. Rossini will elaborate on the tombstones and the remains of some of the greats in Chicago history. Also, she will tie in what all this means to a Chicago Sherlockian as she wanders through this little piece of heaven on earth.



Graceland Cemetery is one of Chicago's most outstanding memorial grounds. It's like a little town with a private lake and mausoleums lining its streets. The funerary architecture is spectacular. Here lie Chicago's deceased: baseball players, boxers, ballerinas, fire victims, detectives, politicians, department store owners and inventors. They passed through nature and on to eternity but not without a pawky connection to Sherlock Holmes.
