Author Conversation with Barbara Butcher “What the Dead Know” – Barnes & Noble Albany, Tuesday, November 14, 2023, 6pm
November 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Barbara Butcher was early in her recovery from alcoholism when she found an unexpected lifeline: a job at the Medical Examiner’s Office in New York City. The second woman ever hired for the role of Death Investigator in Manhattan, she was the first to last more than three months. The work was gritty, demanding, morbid, and sometimes dangerous – she loved it.
WHAT THE DEAD KNOW: Learning About Life as a New York City Death Investigator (Simon & Schuster; 2023) is the page-turning memoir of Barbara Butcher’s more than twenty-year career.
