Our Jewish guest this week is Judith Viorst, who has writtten many books for children, including the classic Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. She tells us about her latest book, Nearing Ninety: And Other Comedies of Late Life, which candidly and humorously captures the realities of growing older.
Our gentile of the week is Edward Lee, the chef/owner of several restaurants in Louisville, Kentucky. His book Buttermilk Graffiti: A Chef’s Journey to Discover America’s New Melting-Pot Cuisine, is a memoir of his culinary roadtrip across the United States. He tells us why the best deli in the country is found in Indiana, and what happens when you visit Dearborn, Michigan, looking to eat during Ramadan.
