Wednesday on Lake Effect: Gun Violence, Connecting Writers in the Great Lakes Region

Jul 23, 2014

Wednesday on Lake Effect:

A series of reports on gun violence looks at why it’s occurring and what might be done at the neighborhood level. Plus, a literary magazine tries to connect writers around the Great Lakes region. And Wisconsin native Rebecca Rasmussen channels some of her childhood trips to the northwoods in her winning new novel, Evergreen.
