Each week Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to respond to a historic or nostalgic photos. For some reason the first thought that came to me about this week’s photo is the Algonquin Round Table, a group of witty writers, critics and actors who would meet for lunch at the Algonquin Hotel.
There’s something attractive about a group of smart, funny people meeting everyday and exchanging stories and barbs and working together on projects. They put on plays, vacationed together on an island in Vermont and played numerous pranks on each other.

This week’s prompt takes us to cemeteries or graveyards. I really don’t visit ancestors graves. I do visit graves in other countries, but never those of relatives as I don’t believe that’s where they are. I have no problem with others visiting them.
So this week I’ll find some photos I’ve found of noted writers’ tombstones.
Jane Austen’s gravestone
Writer James Joyce’s gravestone
