Viva la Muerte: The Mushrooming Cult of Saint Death
The Morbid Anatomy Library celebrates the release of Dr. Andrew Chesnut’s Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint, in which he sheds light on the controversial worship of the patron saint of death in Mexico. The talk will be followed by a Q&A with Morbid Anatomy’s resident scholar, Salvador Olguín, and a party featuring cocktails ($3–$4) and traditional Mexican music by Mariachi Tapatio de Alvaro Paulino. Be sure to grab a piece of the “Santa Muerte and Jesus Malverde” wedding cake, which pays homage to traditional Mexican folk art depicting the unlikely pair tying the knot.
