On her podcast Death, Sex & Money, Anna Sale talks with writers, actors, adventurers – and everyday people – about some intensely personal topics. She gets her guests to open up about things that we tend to worry about often but openly discuss much less frequently – including death. For this year’s first installment of Common Shade, we’ll welcome Anna to Green-Wood’s Historic Chapel and get her to do the talking. Common Shade host Evan Michelson will sit down with Anna to discuss her podcast, the allure of those tough topics, and her own experiences with life’s (and death’s) inevitabilities. Questions and discussion from the audience will follow.


Morbid Anatomy Museum and Green-Wood present Common Shade – a dialogue existing on the borderlands between the living and the dead. Hosted in Green-Wood’s intimate Historic Chapel, Common Shade will cultivate a social space for death – a place to examine death’s prevalence in our lives, and its shifting place in history, art, culture, and society. Drawing from Green-Wood’s bucolic setting and using history as our anchor, each night’s presentations will include dialogue and interviews with guests. Together with artists, practitioners, scholars, and peers, Common Shade discussions will explore our humble acknowledgments of and engagements with death.


$20 for members of Green-Wood, Morbid Anatomy Museum and BHS/$25 for non-members. Drinks will be available for purchase during the event (free for Key Holder members with proof of membership).
