We’ll hear a panel discussion Leonard moderated in WNYC’s Greene Space with a gallery owner, museum curator and two prominent artists about the business of being an artist in New York. Lionel Shriver talks about her novel The New Republic. The BBC’s A History of the World in 100 Objects looks at pot shards from an island off Tanzania. A cloistered nun, Mother Dolores, tells about her former life as a rising star in Hollywood, co-starring with Elvis, and then deciding to become a Benedictine nun. Plus, Nobel Prize-winner Eric R. Kandel talks about the intellectual pioneers of the early 1900s.
