Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

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.
