If there’s one county in the United States that deserves its own cemetery book, it’s New York’s Queens County. With millions of burials in a stunning array of cemeteries of all faiths and sizes dating from 17th to the 20th centuries. Queens burial grounds reflect the diversity and indeed the very story of New York City itself. “Dead Queens” is a visual journey through more than thirty of the borough’s cemeteries in 220 fascinating photographs.  Visit the event calendar for details at www.freeportlibrary.info. to attend, click on the link provided on the date of the program.
