In the nearly two years that we've been on the air, we've interviewed a variety of authors. We revisit conversations with three of those authors. 

The story of Maya Angelou's extraordinary life has been told in her bestselling biographies. Last May she shared with us the story of her relationship with her Mother, which is chronicled in the book Mom and Me and Mom.

Amy Tan, author of the bestselling book The Joy Luck Club stopped by  to discuss her latest book, The Valley of Amazement. And Daniel Handler a.k.a. Lemony Snicket, joined us for one of the most memorable conversations we've ever had on the show.
