The Art And Craft Of Obituary Writing
When a loved one passes away they are often eulogized in church services, visitations and during the funeral. Every day folks and public figures are also remembered in the newspaper, from the smallest obituary to fully written memorials. Obituary writing has become an art form and Ken Garfield has practiced that form for years. He says an obituary can teach the writer, the public and even loved ones, things about the deceased they never fully knew before. He'll share what he has learned about writing obituaries, we'll meet the president of the Society of Professional Obituary writers and we hope you'll share some the most memorable obituaries you have read, when Charlotte Talks.
