In Thornton Wilder's Our Town, addiction, mental illness, and suicide were silent specters looming in the background of Grover's Corners. To conclude the NEA Big Read 2020, Marty Norman of the Wabash Valley Recovery Alliance,
Jaymie Wood of FSA Counseling, and Christina Crist of Team of Mercy will break the silence and discuss the prevalence of substance dependence, mental illness, and suicide in Vigo County. Each speaker will explain the importance of having open conversations, how the community can help those in need overcome the hurdles of recovery, and what resources are available to assist. A question-and-answer session will follow.

In the final act of Our Town, Emily Webb takes her place in Grover's Corners' cemetery, among several other citizens who had passed since 1901. Noticeably absent are faces of color. Is this an omission on Thornton Wilder's part or a representation of a time in America when even cemeteries were segregated? Crystal Reynolds, PhD, will provide insight into the hidden history of African American burials, examine African American burial practices, and look at three notable African American cemeteries and burial grounds across the United States.
