The End

A very generous Library Board member donates his issues of The Economist to the library each month, and they are a popular magazine for people seeking to know what’s going on within the world. I’d never read this magazine before prior to having it at the library, but I’ll take one home now on occasion because the articles are really fascinating and I always learn something.

One of the most interesting parts of the publication are the obituaries at the back of the magazine. Obituaries, you might ask? Yes. As it turns out, a woman named Ann Wroe writes each and every one, researching the lives of each person (or animal) she writes about. Take a moment to read this fascinating interview with Wroe as she talks about what it takes to write such fabulous obituaries.
