Guest host Hope Davis introduces three tales about heroes, heroism, and challenges. In Larry Doyle’s “Reboot Me” a superhero needs rebranding. Chip Kidd reads. In an excerpt from Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, read by Aya Cash, a mousy librarian becomes a glamorous comic-book heroine. The mood shifts with John Biguenet’s “I am Not a Jew,” in which a tourist is tormented by a neo-Nazi gang. The reader is David Strathairn.
