Tuesday on Lake Effect: Living in Poverty on Milwaukee's North Side, Neighborhood News Service

Tuesday on Lake Effect:

The online Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service takes on a huge issue – what it’s like to live in poverty on Milwaukee’s north side. Later, the news service itself is the focus of an academic study on journalism and community building. Writer Joshua Ferris weaves together existentialism, dentistry, and baseball in a winning new novel. And a Lake Effect essayist shares her story of school lunch angst.
