Having the Last Word: America's Obession with Obits
Speaker: Sally Stich
Sally Stich, a freelance magazine writer and teacher, will present an abridged version of her Denver-based adult ed class with the same title. Why is this a hot topic? In a word: Boomers—who are determined to have the final say about themselves. Come learn the history, the politics, and the ethics of obits (social media has changed the game!), how reading obits is good for your health and finally, why the New York Times is the gold standard of obits, with examples of some of the best obituaries written for the NYT.
