Child psychiatrist Lynne Jones tells us why she believes some children who lived through the Bosnian war in the 1990s do not show signs of lasting trauma from the conflict. Next, we’ll talk to John Banville about the writer J.G. Farrell as part of our Summer Reading Series on underappreciated literature. Then, Pam Rogers and Leon McCuthcheon tell us about some extraordinary art being made by people with developmental disabilities. And Stephen Yafa traces the threads of cotton's political and economic influences on world history in Big Cotton: The Biography of a Revolutionary Fiber.
