Best Of: Tracey Thorn / Chef Lidia Bastianich

Tracey Thorn (formerly of the band Everything But the Girl) stepped away from performing two decades ago in order to start a family. Now she sings about the different stages of women's lives on her solo album, 'Record.' Maureen Corrigan reviews the book 'Barracoon' by Zora Neale Hurston. Chef Lidia Bastianich talks about growing up eating farm-to-table meals with her Italian family. After she emigrated to America, she drew on those childhood meals in opening her first restaurant. Her new memoir is 'My American Dream.'
