Bess Lovejoy: REST IN PIECES

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 4:00pm

“A corpse is always a problem” writes author, researcher and editor BESS LOVEJOY in the introduction to her wild new book REST IN PIECES: THE CURIOUS FATES OF FAMOUS CORPSES. You may think that when a person dies and put into the ground, that is the end of the story. But in fact there is a lot of post mortem hanky panky that can occur. Bodies can get lost, they can travel all over the planet, they can get stolen, pieces may be taken as trophies. Tune in tonight and learn about the after death antics of such luminaries as Saint Nicholas, Moliere, Edgar Allen Poe and Eva Peron. 


Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 4:00pm

Many of the smaller industrial cities of America are in serious decline due to the forces of de-industrialization, outsourcing, globalization and white flight. Many of these medium-sized urban areas like Detroit, Buffalo, Grand Rapids and Akron have suffered decades of neglect because most of the national attention and money has gone to the big urban centers. But can there be a future for these cities? Tune in tonight when we talk with CATHERINE TUMBER, journalist, historian and Research Affiliate in the Community Innovators Lab in M.I.T.’s Department of Urban Studies and Planning.
