Wednesday on Lake Effect: Local Authors, Learning Physics from Cartoons, "The Horror of it All"

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

Milwaukee native Sandy Tolan tells the remarkable story of a Palestinian man, and the music conservatory he founded in his troubled community. It’s the subject of Tolan’s new book. Later, two Milwaukee college professors collaborate on a remarkable physics text book – which incorporates cartoon characters to teach systems dynamics. And a UW-Madison grad comes back to Wisconsin to share the story of his love for horror films.


  • Sandy Tolan, Milwaukee native, author of Children of the Stone
  • Tim Decker, UWM and MATC; Vince Prantil, MSOE, authors, The Captains of Energy: Systems Dynamics from an Energy Perspective
  • Adam Rockoff, author, The Horror of It All: One Moviegoer’s Love Affair with Masked Maniacs, Frightened Virgins, and the Living Dead
