New Jersey Encyclopedia Makes Debut

An encyclopedia of all things New Jersey hits bookstores Monday, featuring the work of some 800 freelance writers on topics from property redevelopment to the story of tomato cultivation in the state. The project took nine years and was inspired by a similar work in New York. NPR's Robert Siegel talks to Marc Mappen, co-editor of The Encyclopedia of New Jersey.
