Taylor Swift rights row, RJ Palacio, Nan Goldin and Judy Chicago reviewed, Le Mans '66 reviewed, Amazon's impact on publishing

RJ Palacio’s first novel Wonder has been published in 45 languages, sold 5 million copies worldwide and been made into a film starring Julia Roberts. We speak to RJ about her new graphic novel White Bird which tells the back story of the classroom bully from Wonder, Julian, whose Jewish grandmother fled from the Nazis.

Britcar Endurance Championship winner Sarah Moore dreams of successfully taking part in Le Mans, the iconic 24 hour French competition.

And the Baltic in Gateshead are hosting the biggest show of Judy Chicago's work ever seen in the UK, but the exhibition omits her most famous piece, The Dinner Party. Emily Steer, Editor of Elephant magazine reviews both shows. Presenter: John Wilson Producer: Hannah Robins…read more
