Screens of literature and gender

We're bridging the gap between the page and screen. Big screens.

Mr. Universe, Salman Hameed of Hampshire College, puts on his other hat. As a member of the board of directors for Amherst Cinema, Hameed informs us of their "Science on Screen" series, starting with the film adaptation of "After Yang" (which is also a pretty great novella, if you're into reading it as well).

We check in with NEPM's Nirvani Williams who spoke with Northampton, Massachusetts, locals Gwen Agna and Shelley Rotner, authors of a new book for children on gender, "True You: A Gender Journey."

And director/actor/screenwriter/novelist John Sayles stops by to talk about his impressive body of work, including his new book "Jamie MacGillivray: The Renegade's Journey," which he'll be promoting at Odyssey Bookshop later this week.
