Monday on Lake Effect: Redefining Girly, Using Plants in Drinks, Islands of Milwaukee

Monday on Lake Effect:

A Janesville writer takes on gender expectations in her new book Redefining Girly, in hopes we can avoid the sexualization and stereotyping of girls. Then, a botanist walks into a bar – and comes away with the idea for a book on the long history of using plants in alcoholic beverages. Essayist and violin maker Korinthia Klein comments on last week’s theft of the Lipinski Stradivarius violin, and we have the second installment of our new weekly series The Islands of Milwaukee.
