Wandering Through A Graveyard Full Of Stories

Walk through a cemetery with Michael Griffith - and he’ll spot not only the stories on the stones, but the stories between them.

You can read about the connections in his collection of essays - “The Speaking Stone:  Stories Cemeteries Tell” - his wanderings through Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum in Cincinnati, the third-largest cemetery in this country.



Michael - a South Carolina native - is a longtime resident of Cincinnati and is a Professor of English at the University of Cincinnati.
