All the Way Home with David Giffels

All the Way Home with David Giffels Guys with masters degrees in creative writing don't typically live in mansions. Unless, of course, the mansion is falling down and sells for just 65-thousand dollars, and the guy with the degree is David Giffels. Twelve years ago, Giffels and his wife moved their growing family into a crumbling relic and began to kick out the raccoons and the wisteria in the attic. The Beacon Journal columnist tells the story--part This Old House, very little Father Knows Best, very enjoyably written--in his new book All the Way Home: Building a Family in a Falling Down House. He's our guest Monday morning at 9 o'clock, and you're invited, too.


Arts and Culture, Community/Human Interest, Parenting/Child Care

Additional Information

Check out the schedule of Giffels' appearances or a slideshow of the home restoration.
