The celebration of the Leonard Bernstein centennial continues with a discussion of two fascinating new books about the great American maestro, Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein by his daughter Jamie Bernstein and On the Road and Off the Record with Leonard Bernstein: My Years with the Exasperating Genius by Charlie Harmon. Read one,
