This week, "Art and Soul" is about the art of well being.  Lisa Barry talks with the owner of Crazy Wisdom Bookstore and Tea Room in Ann Arbor, Bill Zirinsky.

He talks about how the store has been a source of wellness and inspiration in Ann Arbor for over 30 years and how they can help in our healing as we ride out the current pandemic and other unsettling societal situations.
