“Over Our Dead Bodies” author/mortician to speak @ Toms River library

TOMS RIVER—Fourth generation undertaker turned author Todd Harra will speak about the book he co-wrote “Over Our Dead Bodies” 7 p.m. Thursday at the Ocean County Library Toms River Branch, 101 Washington St.

“Over Our Dead Bodies: Undertakers Lift The Lid” was co-written with Ken McKenzie and is a collection of the quirky, bizarre and humorous anecdotes borrowed from funeral directors across the United States.

The book is a collection of real stories from morticians and funeral directors that shows the lighter side of our mortality. From police interventions during a funeral riot, to the phenomenon of funeral crashers who show up only for a free meal, it gives a glimpse into the more surreal and whimsical side of the funeral industry.

“Over Our Dead Bodies” is a sequel to the duo’s 2010 book “Mortuary Confidential: Undertakers Spill The Dirt.”

This program is free and open to the public. To register, visit the Ocean County Library’s website www.theoceancountylibrary.org or call 732-349-6200.
