Fresh Air Weekend: Kwame Alexander and Lidia Bastianich

Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:

Poet Kwame Alexander reflects on 'Why Fathers Cry at Night': "I'm not a grown man — I'm a growing man," Alexander says. His new memoir started as a book of love poems, but ended up being a collection of essays and poems about love, divorce and raising children.

Chef Lidia Bastianich looks back on her family's chaotic life in Europe after World War II: The James Beard Award-winning chef fled the Italian peninsula of Istria after it was handed over to Communist Yugoslavia following World War II. Her new PBS show is Lidia Celebrates America.
