Wed 9/25/13 Noon & 7PM If you wanted to catch a glimpse of the author J.D. Salinger while he was alive, your best bet was probably to hang out by the post office in Windsor, Vermont. The reclusive author spent most of his life avoiding publicity in small town New England, but did have to get his mail occasionally.

Our guest Shane Salerno spent 9 years trying to understand what drove J.D. Salinger into hiding, and he's just released a book and a documentary about Salinger’s life.
