The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve & Gertrude Weil

Today our host Mitch Jeserich speaks with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Stephen Greenblatt about his new book The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve, which delves into the creation stories that are woven into the fabric of our modern lives. He is presently the John Cogan University Professor of the Humanities at Harvard University.

Then we speak with Leonard Rogoff, author of Gertrude Weil: Jewish Progressive in the New South. Rogoff is a research historian for the Jewish Heritage Foundation of North Carolina and formerly taught at North Carolina Central University.
