Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Anne Strainchamps interviews Carl Honore, known as the unofficial godfather of the Slowness movement. His book is called Under Pressure: Rescuing Our Children from the Culture of Hyper Parenting. Also mentioned was his earlier book, In Praise of Slowness: How a Worldwide Movement is Challenging the Cult of Speed.

Then, Anne Strainchamps interviews Amy Gorman, author of Aging Artfully: Profiles of 12 Visual and Performing Artists 85-105. The piece also included a clip of Lily Hearst from Greg Young�s documentary, Still Kicking, which profiled six of the women featured in Amy Gorman�s book.

Next, Steve Paulson interviews Father Thomas Keating about spiritual meditation. Father Keating was the Abott of St. Josephs Abbey in Massachusetts, and later one of the founders of the Centering Prayer movement.

After that, Jim Fleming interviews Lera Auerbach, Russian classical concert pianist and composer, about her lifelong fear of time. Her autobiographical novel is called The Mirror.

Following that, Steve Paulson interviews Claire Tomalin about her biography, Thomas Hardy. She says it was the death of his wife, Emma, that brought out Hardy's true nature as a poet.

And finally, a sound portrait of Diana Athill, who worked for years as editor for some of the world�s most accomplished writers, including John Updike, and V.S. Naipaul. At the age of 91, she wrote her second memoir, Somewhere Towards the End. [Broadcast Date: January 6, 2010]
