Thursday, April 28 - 5 to 7pm
Union South, UW-Madison
Kathy Cramer discusses Politics of Resentment: Rural Consciousness in Wisconsin and the Rise of Scott Walker. Kathy's research examines rural resentment toward cities and its implications for contemporary politics (University of Chicago Press). Sponsored by Friends of the UW-Madison Libraries. If you weren't able to make it to her discussion of the book when she visited Mystery to Me, stop by Union South. This is a fascinating topic during this turbulent election year. 

Friday, April 29 -- 7pm
Erika Janik

Doug Moe interviews Erika Janik about her new book Pistols and Petticoats: 175 years of Lady Detectives in Fact and Fiction. Pistols and Petticoats tells the story of women’s very early place in crime fiction and their public crusade to transform policing. Investigating women whether real or fictional were nearly always at odds with society. Most women refused to let that stop them, paving the way to a modern professional life for women on the force and in popular culture.

Erika Janik is a freelance writer and the executive producer of Wisconsin Life at Wisconsin Public Radio. She is the author of Marketplace of the Marvelous: The Strange Origins of Modern MedicineApple: A Global History, Madison: A History of a Model City, A Short History of Wisconsin, and Odd Wisconsin: Amusing, Perplexing and Unlikely Stories from Wisconsin’s Past.

Her work has appeared in Smithsonian, The Atlantic, Salon, Slate, Midwest Living, Mental Floss, Edible Milwaukee, On Wisconsin, and The Onion, among others.

Originally from Redmond, Washington, Erika now knows more about Wisconsin history than she ever thought possible. She has a BA in history from Linfield College (2002), an MA in American history from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2004), and an MA in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (2006).
