Thursday on Lake Effect: National Parasite Database, Andre Pirtle, Theatre As Conversation-Starter

Thursday on Lake Effect:

A National Science Foundation grant is supporting the Milwaukee Public Museum’s participation in a coordinated national project. We’ll learn more from the museum’s research curator, Dr. Jennifer Zaspel. Then, we speak with Andre Pirtle, a young pastor working with Milwaukee communities - from the homeless to youth groups. And Chris Jones, the theatre critic for The Chicago Tribune, makes the case for theatre as a means to both respond to the current cultural climate and provoke conversation.
