Host Charity Nebbe explores art created by veterans in their post-military lives. We hear examples of poetry from Hugh Martin, winner of The Iowa Review's Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans. Also, we hear journalism and creative non-fiction from Randy Brown. And the music and military reflections of Lem Genovese.
Artists are often thought of as creative, while scientists are stereotyped as logical, but the work of artists and scientists have many similarities. We sit down with author Lawrence Weschler to examine the relationship between art and science.
Also we discuss the modern art of book covers and why some new covers for classic books have causes a lot of controversy.
