Tuesday on Lake Effect: 'Foxconned,' Niche Book Bar, books to gift, health impact of green spaces, Milwaukee's Calatrava

Today on Lake Effect, we speak with the author of Foxconned about how the project has slowly slimmed down from what was initially promised. Then, check in with Niche Book Bar about how they’ve transitioned from a pop-up to a physical location. Our annual books to gift conversation looks at some of this year's best books. Plus, why green spaces could have a big impact on your health.
