The Bob Edwards Show, Joy Kiser and Peter Edelman, June 19, 2012 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Joy Kiser and Peter Edelman, June 19, 2012

In 1876, an amateur birder named Genevieve Jones resolved to illustrate a book of nests and eggs inspired by the work of naturalist John James Audubon. Tragically, Jones died before she completed her project, and her family finished the book in her memory. The completed version – with only 90 published – became one of the most prized naturalist books of the 19th century. Now, America’s Other Audubon, a full reprinting of Jones’ remarkable work, is available.

Then, income disparities in the United States are now more vast than at any point since the Great Depression. The average CEO makes over $11 million dollars a year while the median household income for African Americans is just over $32,000 a year. Peter Edelman explains why it’s so hard to end poverty in America in his new book, So Rich, So Poor. [Broadcast Date: June 19, 2012]
