Imperfect Birds & The Citizen Soldier

How do the real lives of novelists empower their storytelling? We’ll talk with writer Anne Lamott about the hazy demarcation between the personal and the professional and what lessons parents might glean from some of the characters in her latest novel, “Imperfect Birds” (Riverhead Books, 2010). And in the Art&Seek segment, Jerome Weeks talks with photographer Grant Meeks about his upcoming exhibit “The Citizen Soldier,” which features portraits of North Texas veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
