A lot of questions flew to mind after the stabbing of author Salman Rushdie.
Some are easier to answer than others — like, for instance, what exactly is the Chautauqua Institution, where Rushdie was about to speak?
NPR spoke with longtime visitors and officials about the cultural venue's history, appeal ... and future security plans.
