The Book Show #927

Albany, NY – It may be too often said that you can't go home again, but in Melissa Holbrook Pierson's new book "The Place You Love Is Gone," the feeling is examined more closely than usual. The book is a meditation on what has happened to three of Pierson's former homes: Akron, OH; Hoboken, NJ; and Ulster County in New York. Gretchen talks to the author about why the changes in landscape and community brought on by economic and social forces have changed them irrevocably.
