Lemons To Lemonade: "Finding The Good"

Algonquin Books

A recent guest pointed out that gravestones contain the year of birth, the year of death, and a dash in between.  And it's up to us to determine what that dash represents. 

Heather Lende can (and will) tell us all about that.

We get the secrets of good obituary writing... and living the lives that make for interesting obituaries.
