 Peter Laurence, author of Becoming Jane Jacobs, examines the life of Jane Jacobs, a pioneering urban thinker of the 1950s and 60s. Jacobs is best known as the author of Death and Life of Great American Cities. Laurence digs into her work before that, as an activist protesting eminent domain and urban renewal. 

Then, Kristine Allen talks to Carrie Anne Noble of Lycoming County. Noble won Amazon's Breakthrough Novel of the Year contest in 2014 in the young adult category for her debut novel, The Mermaid's Sister.
