Culture Yourself: Today At NPR For Wednesday, September 14, 2011

It was Will Arnett Day on Fresh Air, where the actor talked about his past roles and his new (pretty good) show, Up All Night.

On today's All Things Considered, Melissa Block hears from one critic about the goings-on at the Toronto International Film Festival.

The always lively Beauty Shop segment on Tell Me More featured Miss Universe, Latina magazine, and lots more.

In books, we have a review of the new book American Anthrax, which looks back (as you can imagine) at the anthrax attacks in the fall of 2001. Glenn C. Altschuler says the book by Jeanne Guillemin is "an intriguing and insightful account of a time in which Americans found it difficult to breathe easily."

There's a ton of great stuff in music today: a guide to the Monterey Jazz Festival from A Blog Supreme, the always helpful Fall Music Preview from All Songs Considered, and a very special First Listen to Tony Bennett's latest album of duets, featuring a performance from the late Amy Winehouse.
