Janet Groth was a receptionist at the New Yorker magazine from 1957 to 1978. She says she was like a mother hen to the magazine's legendary writers, including J.D. Salinger. Next we hear from a man who visited Salinger's home in 1960, to ask whether Salinger would allow him to adapt The Catcher in the Rye for his high school's stage. Our third story comes from a woman who revisited her childhood home, in happier times, via Google's Street view images.
