Monday on Lake Effect: 'Janesville,' On That Note, Walking the Appalachian Trail, 'Mother Land'

Monday on Lake Effect:

A Washington Post writer's recent book explains how Janesville reached its heyday and what happened after its GM assembly plant closed in 2008. Later, cellist Robert Cohen talks about the phenomenon of playing a concert with a former student. Contributor Lauren Groh offers her latest dispatch from along the Appalachian Trail. And novelist Paul Theroux's latest novel tells the epic story of a tyrannical mother.
