Tuesday on Lake Effect: Wisconsin Poll Watching, Milwaukee Public Library Director, 'By A Lake'

Tuesday on Lake Effect

We learn about poll watching and unpack what happened at Wisconsin polling sites last week. Then, Milwaukee Public Library Director Joan Johnson talks about the important roles libraries have played during the pandemic. And a Milwaukee poet explains how they were inspired by a book of translated Chinese Poems. Plus, a poem about appreciation for frontline workers.
