Publisher's Summary

David Broder of The Washington Post joins Bob to talk politics. Next, American artist Chuck Close is a master of highly detailed, larger-than-life portraits that bring out his subjects’ intellectual depth. Writer and personal friend Christopher Finch’s biography Chuck Close: Life takes readers through Close’s art student days in Seattle to his professional success with critics and the public alike. In 1988, Close suffered a spinal artery collapse, leaving him wheelchair bound but still painting. In 2000, President Bill Clinton awarded Close with the National Medal of Arts.

Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, Bob talks with curator Dan Gediman about the essay of writer and lecturer Ruth Cranston. She was born in Cincinnati, lived in 18 different countries during her life, including 10 years in Switzerland where she worked for the League of Nations. She wrote World Faith: The Story of the Religions of the United Nations. [Broadcast Date: August 20, 2010]
