On tap for today: Tony Kushner, who wrote the screenplay for the new Steven Spielberg film, “Lincoln.” Kushner won a Pulitzer in 1993 for his play “Angels in America.”
We’ll also hear from Doris Kearns Goodwin, whose biography “Team of Rivals” was the basis for the movie.

Nota bene: From Vermeer to Jasper Johns, artists have long used maps to tell us something about our world. Vermeer may have used maps in many of his paintings to suggest that the characters in his paintings were naval officers on a courtship visit or that the women in the paintings were writing to or pining for men in the navy. Then again, Vermeer may have used them for other reasons altogether — art historians have been debating this topic for years.
