More To Life

If you're looking for a new coffee table or wine rack, why not consider a dual-purpose piece, like a coffin. While this might not be to your taste, there are all kinds of trends breathing new life into the funeral industry. Two funeral directors, Jim Cardinal and David Garvey join us to talk shop and take your calls. Bookstore mega-mergers; publishers urging you to buy Canadian; famous authors alternately annoying and adoring Oprah Winfrey: what is going on with the Canadian book publishing industry? Scott Anderson, editor of Quill and Quire joins us to tell all. This show contains 1 taped piece "Mount Pleasant Cemetery". Show is phone-in based, and viewers can also participate via e-mail.
