Join us for an evening with beloved humorist and CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Mo Rocca, in conversation with Emmy-award winning journalist Matt Stewart.  Rocca will discuss his recent book, "Mobituaries: Great Lives Worth Retelling," an entertaining and rigorously researched celebration of the dead people (and things) of the past who have long fascinated him. Inspired by his #1 hit podcast of the same name, the book includes all new essays on artists, entertainers, sports stars, political pioneers, founding fathers, and more, providing an insightful and unconventional account of the people who made life worth living for the rest of us.

Rocca is host of the CBS series The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation, and he created and hosted the Cooking Channel’s My Grandmother’s Ravioli, in which he learned to cook from grandparents across America. He is a frequent panelist on NPR’s hit show Wait, Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!, and spent four seasons as a correspondent on both Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. 

"Mobituaries" will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the program.
