Published in 1967, "The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton, centered on the emotional challenges of competing factions of teenagers, is considered a classic, and a pioneer in the young adult fiction category. The book has sold more than 10 million copies, been translated into dozens of languages, and is part of the core curriculum in schools across the country. Serena Altschul talks with Hinton, who started writing when she was 15, about how her novel became a touchstone for young readers; and to actor Rob Lowe, who turned 18 on the set of the 1983 film, which helped launch his career.

On May 1, 2015, while vacationing in Mexico, the husband of Sheryl Sandberg, the chief operating officer of Facebook, died suddenly; Dave Goldberg was just 47. Then known for her bestselling 2013 book "Lean In," which urged women in the workplace to stand up for themselves, Sandberg unexpectedly found herself confronting her toughest challenge, as a single mother of two young children. In an emotional and wide-ranging interview, Sandberg talks with "CBS This Morning" co-anchor Norah O'Donnell about how she and her children worked together to move forward after the loss. She also talks about coping with grief and other life lessons she explores in her new book, "Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience and Finding Joy," co-written with friend and psychologist Adam Grant.
Gordon Hempton, who calls himself the Sound Tracker, is an "acoustic ecologist" who has traveled the world recording the sounds of nature, from birdsong and rainfall to babbling brooks and the rustling of leaves. But the noise we humans make is making it harder to find those quiet places - and, he says, it's having real consequences for wildlife as well. Bernie Krause, a musician and sound recordist, has become an audio anthropologist, documenting the sounds of nature. He also has noticed dramatic changes in some areas, such as in a Costa Rican rain forest. He helps correspondent Lee Cowan (and us) listen to the difference.
