#04: Letters to the Dead

May 17, 2016

When we choose who to remember with our obituaries, what cultural landscape do we create? In "Letters to the Dead," we explore the New York Times Obituary Desk, Iceland’s obsession with death, and a renegade obituarist who finds the extraordinary in the ordinary. Featuring: Vanessa Gould, director of Obit; Nanna Arnadottir, columnist for Reykjavik Grapevine; Karl Blöndal, Vice Editor of Morgunblaðið; Kay Powell, retired obit writer and editor for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and more.
