Saturday, April 11, 2020,
11am - 1pm


This event has been cancelled until further notice. We are following the recommendation from the Santa Cruz County Public Health Department to avoid non-essential gatherings in order to limit opportunities for COVID-19 transmission.


Join Researcher Anonymous and Traci Bliss, an award-winning emerita professor and author, in a discussion on her upcoming book Evergreen Cemetery of Santa Cruz.

In Traci's latest research-based book, which will hit shelves in May 2020, she captures the diverse range of interconnected lives at Evergreen Cemetery. Her ancestors, the Imus family, donated land for the cemetery in the 1850s giving her a personal connection to the historic site.
