Tidbits From NPR

I pick up quite a bit of information from listening to NPR. For the past several months I listen everyday, and now I've got a little notebook to jot down scraps of information. Here are some recent NPR tidbits, for further reference.
Premires in NYC Nov. 21, 2012

1. Ken Burns is making a documentary called "The Central Park Five," about the jogger who was attacked in Central Park in 1989.

2. Bernard Malamud's daughter Janna Malamud Smith has written a book called "Absorbing Errands: How Artists and Craftsmen Make Their Way to Mastery," about the process of being a master artist or crafts-person in this digital, fast-paced, multitasking world.

3. There's a new hiking and biking trail in development, stretching from the South Shore of Boston to the North Shore, called the Bay Curcuit Trail. 

4. I liked the sound of a band called "The Sail Away Ladies." 

5. I heard an interview with a journalist who works for the Washington Post--Susannah Cahalan. She wrote a book called "Brain on Fire," about her experience with madness. When I went to the Strand Bookstore recently in NYC, I found a signed copy of her book. Awesome.
