Celebrities Tell Tales Of Objects Found
A child's photo propped inside the wood stove of an empty cabin.
A little tale buried in The Miami Herald about an orchid thief.
A kid's two-page, handwritten history of America.
Scraps of paper and objects lost mean there's a chance for someone to find them. Davy Rothbart has made a career of having people send him the bits and pieces they find.
He's the creator of Found magazine, and for years he's been collecting — almost curating — letters, doodles and more peeks into other people's lives.
He's got a new anthology coming out called Requiem for a Paper Bag: Celebrities and Civilians Tell Stories of the Best Lost, Tossed and Found Items from Around the World.
