Thursday on Lake Effect: Five Years After Act 10, Paula Poundstone, and Mad Hot Ballroom

Thursday on Lake Effect:

We look at the impact of Act 10, five years after it became law. Then, two Wisconsin authors works to make children’s literature representative of all the kids who read it. Comedian Paula Poundstone discusses politics, internet dating, and dying her hair ahead of her stand-up performance at the Pabst this Saturday. Plus we catch up with the founders of Milwaukee’s Mad Hot Ballroom dance project for kids, and meet the Tasmanian based playwright of the The Snow, currently onstage at First Stage Children’s Theatre.
