Monday on Lake Effect: Wisconsin Authors Special

Monday on Lake Effect:

Monday on the show, it’s a Wisconsin author’s edition.  In a racially charged time, we learn the little-known story of Perry Wallace from writer Andrew Maraniss.  Plus, Milwaukee-area novelist Lesley Kagen talks about the art of writing about tough subjects with a light touch.  And writing his recent murder mystery, it took Jim DeVita three years to figure out… whodunit. 


  • Andrew Maraniss, author, Strong Inside
  • Lesley Kagen, author, The Resurrection of Tess Blessing
  • Jim DeVita, author, A Winsome Murder
