Overexposed and Underappreciated

We’ll discuss the overuse of antibiotics in animal feed, and the Food and Drug Administration’s recent calls for limiting the practice. Then, this year’s first installment of our Underappreciated summer reading series looks at the one-time bestselling German writer Hans Fallada. Also, filmmaker Tamra Davis tells us about her documentary “Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child,” about the late artist’s meteoric rise and fall. Plus, our resident word maven, Patricia T. O’Conner, reveals the winners of our Bad Sign Language contest and takes your calls on the vagaries of the confusing English language.
