Lost in the Museum

Years ago (too many years ago!) I wrote a fun little book as a birthday goody-bag prize. It was spare – good for a half-hour read at most – and meant to encapsulate an adventure at our local museum. I love our museum, and I adore the exhibit within, the Streets of Old Milwaukee – […]
