Wednesday on Lake Effect: Detroit's Story, Urban Exploration Photographer, Printmaker

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

Wisconsin writer David Maraniss looks back to the beginnings of Detroit’s decline, and explains the lesson in it for the nation. Later, a Chicago photographer captures amazing pictures of abandoned buildings, including the now-torn down Schlitz brew house in Milwaukee. We’ll meet letterpress printmaker Amos Kennedy, and learn why he’s relocated to the rust belt. And a holiday season song of hope ahead of a concert this evening in Milwaukee.
