Wednesday on Lake Effect: Right-to-Work History and Impact, Author Bret Anthony Johnston, Book List

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

As a potential debate over right-to-work laws looms in Wisconsin, we get some historical perspective on such legislation, and more insight into the impact it could have on labor and politics in the Badger State. Later, we’ll chat with Bret Anthony Johnston about his best-selling novel, his work at Harvard University and the similarities he sees between writing and skateboarding. And in time for holiday shopping, suggestions for the best gift books from Boswell’s Daniel Goldin.
