They’re everywhere. Howling or moaning their way through movies and across television screens. Wherever they are, they’re always hunting – us. Where did these ideas originate and what’s the underlying grain of truth, if any, to zombies?
The Smoky Hill Museum will host this free presentation from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on Thursday. It was previously cancelled due to inclement weather and rescheduled for this date. To accommodate a larger crowd, the presentation will be held in the fellowship hall of the First United Methodist Church, 122 N. Eighth, directly across the street from the museum.
Join Cécile Accilien as she shares the story of what we’ve come to call zombies. She’ll also discuss what it might reveal about our culture that we’re so smitten with them. Taking a closer look at the undead just might help us understand the living. Accilien is an author, presenter, associate professor of Haitian studies and director of the Institute of Haitian Studies at the University of Kansas.
