Memorial Day Holiday Specials
Two exemplars from the archives
It's a little hard to believe it's Memorial Day already; the world seems like it went into suspended animation in March, and yet the calendar races ahead. The JX observes the holiday by keeping the crew at home and bringing in a couple of interviews from previous programs.
At 8:00, British parenting expert Sarah Ockwell-Smith shares some techniques for keeping an orderly relationship with children. She's written many books, and we focused on Gentle Parenting.
At 9:00, two novelists from the Boston area share their works of fiction, and their unusual connection: Rachel Kadish, who wrote The Weight of Ink, is the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors in World War II; Jessica Shattuck, the author of The Women in the Castle, is the granddaughter of members of the Nazi party. They shared a number of joint appearances, and this interview from 2017.
