  • Hunting Goodenough Days

    Image of the word "Goodenough" from a gravestone.

    Artist Bea Nettles uses photographs of names from gravestones to create poetry for her book projects. Her most recent book “Head Lines: Worlds Warning” is a chronology of the COVID-19 outbreak. Nettles found this name in a cemetery in Rochester, N.Y., and used it in her “Head Lines” book.
