Marc Bookman looks into the case of Andre Thomas, who was convicted of murdering his family and sentenced to death, despite the fact that he was mentally ill. Nigerian artist El Anatsui describes creating large tapestries out of unlikely things like bottle caps. He’ll be joined by Susan Vogel, who’s directed a film and written a book about the international art star. Photographer Chester Higgins discusses Ancient Nubia, which stretched along the Nile in southern Egypt and Northern Sudan. Plus, this week’s Please Explain is all about nursing!
