Secret Life, Secret Death!

Monday, April 25th at 6 pm!

Local author, Genevieve Davis will be here to talk about her wonderful true story about a grandmother she never knew. Her research turned up  some startling facts. Come and listen to Genevieve’s story and even see a clip of the upcoming film!

Book Cover

There was a time when brothels were far from uncommon in Wisconsin’s Northwoods. Still, if you found out that your dad’s mother ran a brothel, that might be a shock. And then, if you found out your grandmother was closely connected to gangland Chicago in the Roaring 1920s… and then, you find out that your grandmother died under mysterious circumstances… well, that’s a mystery too fascinating to be left alone. Local author and artist, Genevieve Davis, grew up in Whitefish Bay, WI.

SECRET LIFE, SECRET DEATH is a non-fiction mystery that answers the question, “Ever wonder what happened to women in the Mob?” Because you usually find out what happened to guys, but never the women!

The Great Lakes!
Monday, April 11th at 6 pm.
With Moira Harrington with the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute

The Great Great Lakes!
Port Washington is located along the shore of the world’s fifth largest lake, Lake Michigan. It, and its fellow four Great Lakes, make up the world’s largest freshwater system. On a planet that’s demanding ever greater amounts of fresh, clean water, the Great Lakes are pretty appealing. They’ve always been appealing to those of us here in Wisconsin. In this talk, Wisconsin Sea Grant’s Moira Harrington will share some lake facts and information on recent research and outreach projects related to the lakes.
For more information about the program, or about Sea Grant, please visit seagrant.wisc.edu
