Wednesday on Lake Effect: Actor Jane Lynch on AIDS Walk Wisconsin, 'Silent Sky,' 'The Explorer'

Wednesday on Lake Effect

Actor Jane Lynch chairs this year’s Wisconsin AIDS Walk and thinks back to a time in the theater when the AIDS crisis was just beginning. Later, a play at Next Act Theatre tells the story of the little-appreciated work done by pioneering women astronomers of the early 20th Century. And writer Katherine Rundell shares her captivating tale of four young children and their adventure in the Amazon rainforest.
