“WHAT'S A DOG FOR?”

The Surprising History, Science, Philosophy, and Politics of Man's Best Friend


By

John Homans

john homans

Canine culture in America is evolving. No longer are our pets roaming around in the backyard or wandering the neighborhood. In the U-S alone, an estimated 77 million pet pooches have become members of the family, many are treated like surrogate children. But how has modern life affected the dog? What are a dog's rights? What about the morality of "puppy mills" and "no kill" shelters? Kari talks with New Yorker John Homans about how his adopted black Lab "Stella" inspired his investigation of "Man's Best Friend" and what they teach us about love, death and morality.

“THE CUTTING SEASON”


By

Attica Locke

attica locke

When Los Angeles novelist Attica Locke visited a famous plantation to attend a wedding a few years ago, she was profoundly moved. She knew that one day she would write a story centered on just such a place. In her sophomore novel "The Cutting Season", Locke offers an historically rich mystery about two families and two murders a century apart…it all takes place at the "Belle Vie" Plantation in Louisiana where the locals, both Blacks and Whites, deal with race and class in the Post-Katrina South.

“BRAIN ON FIRE”

My Month of Madness


By

Susannah Cahalan

susannah cahalan

Imagine what it would be like to slowly lose your mind…developing a range of harrowing neurological symptoms including psychosis and violent seizures that baffle doctors and trigger a month in a hospital with no memory of it at all? It happened to then-24 year old "New York Post" Reporter Susannah Cahalan. Cahalan's ultimate diagnosis of a rare autoimmune "brain attack" includes the very latest developments in cutting edge treatment…and sage advice about the importance of patient advocacy and getting second opinions. Autoimmune disease afflicts 50 million Americans…most of them women. Research continues and could have implications for treating Alzheimer's and other mental disorders.
