'The Way to the Spring': Life and Death in a Palestinian Village A 17-year-old Palestinian boy broke into a West Bank settlement last week and stabbed a thirteen-year-old Jewish girl to death while she slept. It’s the latest in an ongoing wave of violence around West Bank settlements that has resulted in the deaths of 33 Israelis and more than 200 Palestinians in the last nine months. More than half a million people now live in Israeli settlements in the West Bank. One of those settlements, Halamish, sits right next to the small Palestinian village of Nabi Saleh. Since 2011, author and journalist Ben Ehrenreich has been traveling to Nabi Saleh, and other Palestinian communities, to report on their protests, their confrontations with Israeli troops, and the often harsh realities of their lives. The result is a new book called “The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palestine.”

In 'Speechless,' Scott Silveri combines comedy, family & disability Scott Silveri has written and produced sitcoms for more than 20 years. In all that time, he never encountered a TV family that looked anything like the one he grew up in -- with a mom, a dad...and a brother with cerebral palsy. He changed that with his show Speechless on ABC. Silveri tells us about looking to his own past for stories, and why he was determined to make a family comedy and not just a "disability show."
