“Nine Years Under” and “The End of Your Life Book Club”
June 5, 2013
Hosted by Kathryn Zox
Kathryn interviews spoken word artist Sheri Booker, author of “Nine Years Under: Coming of Age in an Inner-City Funeral Home”. What started as a seemingly simple summer job at a West Baltimore funeral home quickly turned into nine years of life changing experiences for Sheri Booker. Her memoir recounts Booker's formative years spent learning about the culture of urban funerals, the business of life and death, and the variety of responses to grief and loss. Kathryn also interviews New York Times bestselling author Will Schwalbe on his book “The End of Your Life Book Club”. To pass the time in between cancer treatments, Schwalbe and his ailing mother Mary Anne would talk about the books they were reading. Once by chance they were both reading the same book, sparking an informal book club between the two. Schwalbe is the founder and CEO of Cookstr.com and has written for the New York Times and the South China Morning Post.
