Halloween Fun: Odd Wisconsin
Wednesday, October 31, 2012 12:15–1 pm
Author Erika Janik shares fun and surprising stories of the people, places and events of Wisconsin's past that you didn't learn in school. Why would the University of Wisconsin have a band play for cows? Why did legislators consider umbrellas essential to debate on the Assembly floor in the 19th century? You may find yourself surprised, perplexed and astonished by the answers. Janik will sign copies of her book, 'Odd Wisconsin: Amusing, Perplexing, and Unlikely Stories from Wisconsin's Past,' following the presentation.
