Friday on Lake Effect: 'The Great Believers,' Water, Flooding & Art, Bubbler Talk

Friday on Lake Effect:




Chicago writer Rebecca Makkai talks about capturing the essence of the AIDS epidemic in places like Illinois and Wisconsin in the mid-1980s and early '90s for her latest novel.  Then, in a season of flooding, a new art exhibit puts a more positive spin on water.  Plus, we learn the story of the man who started the best-known store at Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport.
