Gold Line train in Little Tokyo.

Race, religion, sexuality, otherness... these are all topics for discussion in the life of writer Carla Rachel Sameth. 

And discuss them she does, in the book One Day on the Gold Line: A Memoir in Essays.  The Gold Line is a light-rail line in Los Angeles, where Carla was a single Jewish lesbian raising an African-American son. 

The highs and lows of her non-traditional life are reflected in the book's essays.  Carla Sameth visits to talk about her life and her work.
