Read in Peace Book Club at Historic Oakwood

A club for the living to discuss the dead


Oakwood Read in Peace book club meets on the third Thursday of each month. Join us at 9am in the cemetery office to discuss our most recent book, bring your coffee and a curious mind.

This group is free and open to all.  Didn’t read the book? No worries, stop by and enjoy the conversation.


Have a book suggestion?

We are currently working on our 2023 book list and would love to hear your recommendations. We are particularly interested in your favorite books related to local history, the death industry, cemeteries and monumental art.

Please email Program Coordinator Brianna McCormick with any suggestions, question or concerns.
