Not every undocumented migrant crossing our southern border makes it. Remains of those who die in the attempt are found in the open and in unmarked graves. Meet the anthropologist using forensics to return skeletal remains to waiting families. Then KU's Lisa McLendon says "it's all about attitude" when it comes to grammar. Her passion for sentence structure and punctuation led her to write a workbook about it. Finally, Brian McTavish presents the latest Weekend To-Do List.

Anthropologist Dr. Lori Baker will be speaking at 7:00 pm on Thursday, March 16 at the Linda Hall Library. The event is free and open to the public but e-tickets are required. For more information, visit
