Inside 'Sara Berman's Closet' The art installation 'Sara Berman's Closet' chronicles the life of a woman who grew up in a shtetl in Belarus, fled with family to Palestine, and then eventually moved to New York City to start a new life. Berman's daughter, children's book author and illustrator Maira Kalman and Berman's grandson, designer Alex Kalman, tell her story in a new book accompaniment to the museum exhibit.

Also, we remember Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Tony Horwitz. He spoke with Terry Gross in 1998 when 'Confederates in the Attic' was published. He died this week at age 60. Book critic Maureen Corrigan reviews his new book 'Spying on the South,' published just weeks before his death.
