Luke Russert Book Explores Grief, Self-discovery and Purpose

Luke Russert, host and creative director of “MSNBC Live”, discusses his book Look For Me There: Grieving my Father, Finding Myself, and his personal journey after his dad, Tim’s, sudden and tragic death, that covers three years, six continents, his faith, relationship with his mother, a coup d’etat, Billy Ray Cyrus’s Achy Break Heart, dive bar discussions with ordinary folks, and much more. A refreshingly honest, at times gut-wrenching, but ultimately inspiring tale appropriate for anyone who has suffered the loss of a loved one.
