Davy Rothbart is a writer and storyteller who started a magazine called Found. It's made up of notes, photos, grocery lists and other stray pieces of paper found laying on the ground, hanging from a lamp post, or anywhere else to which forgotten things drift.

Rothbart got the idea for the magazine a couple of years ago when he himself found someone else's letter.
