Friday on Lake Effect: President of Milwaukee Public Museum, Odin's Promise, Wine & Cheese

Friday on Lake Effect:

Whitefish Bay native Dennis Kois returns home to Wisconsin to head the Milwaukee Public Museum – we’ll learn what he sees as the future of the vaunted institution and the challenges he faces. Later, a Milwaukee area writer takes her young readers to German-occupied Norway at the outset of World War II in a new novel. Our wine contributor thinks a Napa Valley auction could inspire similar ways to support causes in places like Milwaukee; and we’ll visit a cheese dinner – just cheese, that is.
