In remembrance of CMU alumnus and Night of the Living Dead director George A. Romero, who passed away this summer, Carnegie Mellon University Libraries presents Legacy of the Dead: A Tribute to George A. Romero. Created by library faculty and staff, Legacy of the Dead celebrates the life and career of a cinema maverick who defied convention and inspired an entire subgenre within horror literature and media. Activities include a multipart blog series beginning Monday, October 23rd, with each post offering a critical and historical analysis of his films and their place in the scholarly community. An exhibition of film memorabilia, Legacy of the Dead: An Exhibition, donated by CMU School of Drama Professor Emeritus and Romero collaborator Barbara Anderson, will be on view in Hunt Library beginning October 25, 2017 as well. 
 
Join us as we commemorate the passing of a local legend and brush up on your Romero filmography by visiting Row House Cinema’s weeklong selection of Romero movies beginning Friday, October 13th.  Stay scared!
