Mo Rocca is a correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, host of The Henry Ford’s Innovation Nation, and host and creator of the Cooking Channel’s My Grandmother’s Ravioli, in which he learns to cook from grandmothers and grandfathers across the country. He’s a frequent panelist on NPR’s hit weekly quiz show Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, spent four seasons as a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, and four seasons as a correspondent on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. In Mobituaries (Simon & Schuster), the journalist, humorist, and history buff profiles the people who have long fascinated him but whose lives were never truly examined, including Thomas Paine, Audrey Hepburn, and Billy Carter. Mobituaries is an insightful and unconventional account of the people who made life worth living for the rest of us, one that asks us to think about who gets remembered, and why.
