Lake Effect Weekend: Tom Bamberger, Marnie Mamminga, Radio Chipstone, Ex Fabula

This weekend on Lake Effect:

Architecture critic Tom Bamberger explains why he thinks the design of the new Northwestern Mutual tower works so well. Then, author Marnie Mamminga and her husband find themselves with a flat tire in the northwoods of Wisconsin - and find they have to actually use the owner’s manual. Radio Chipstone visits the Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend to explore the exhibition of children’s clothes designed by Milwaukee native Florence Eiseman, and we present the latest edition of our story-telling series, Ex Fabula.
