The Book Keepers: Documentary In-Progress

Short synopsis: In 2014, Carol Wall's debut memoir, Mister Owita's Guide to Gardening, was published to critical acclaim.  Carol Wall, however, was too sick to participate in promoting the book.  She was dying of cancer.  Before her death, she told her youngest son, "You take care of our book."  She died nine months after the book's publication, and one week before it was named a Top 10 Book of the Year by both USA Today and AARP.  After her death, Carol's husband, Dick Wall, embarked on a quest to do everything in his power to help Carol’s book reach its audience, and ensure that her name will never die.  Made by the couple's youngest son, this film is follows their love story, their dream interrupted, Dick’s quest to tell the world about her book and the lessons he's learned about living and loving after loss.
