Milwaukee writer John Gurda has studied and documented Milwaukee history since 1972. In addition to his work as an author, Gurda is a lecturer, tour guide, and local history columnist for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Join us to hear John Gurda give a presentation based on his book Milwaukee: A City Built on Water. Telling tales of brewers, brickmakers, ecologists, and engineers, the book explores the city’s complicated connection with its most precious resource and greatest challenge. Books will be available for purchase and signing. John Gurda’s program begins at 6:30pm.
An optional dusk hike to Lake Michigan, guided by Schlitz Audubon staff, will begin at 5:00pm. Hikers are welcome to bring flashlights.
We invite you up to our Mezzanine Gallery for an opening reception for artists Lynn Rix and Pamela Ruschman.
