Monday on Lake Effect: 'America's Dairyland' documentary, ancient canoe discovery, book of the month, Bubbler Talk

Today on Lake Effect, we look at the new Milwaukee PBS documentary America’s Dairyland at the Crossroads, and the state of the industry in Wisconsin. Then, we learn how a twelve hundred-year-old canoe was found and excavated from the bottom of Lake Mendota. In our Book of the Month series, a Milwaukee Public librarian talks about the magic of a good romance novel. Plus, Bubbler Talk explores the city’s first music store.
