    In this long overdue tribute to Wisconsin's first scientist, authors Martha Bergland and Paul G. Hayes explore the remarkable life and achievements of Increase Lapham (1811-1875). Lapham's ability to observe, understand, and meticulously catalog the natural world marked all of his work, from his days as a teenage surveyor on the Erie Canal to his last great contribution as state geologist.

    Self-taught, Lapham mastered botany, geology, archaeology, limnology, mineralogy, engineering, meteorology, and cartography. A prolific writer, his 1844 guide to the territory was the first book published in Wisconsin. Asked late in life which field of science was his specialty, he replied simply, "I am studying Wisconsin."

    Lapham identified and preserved thousands of botanical specimens. He surveyed and mapped Wisconsin's effigy mounds. He was a force behind the creation of the National Weather Service, lobbying for a storm warning system to protect Great Lakes sailors. Told in compelling detail through Lapham's letters, journals, books, and articles, Studying Wisconsin chronicles the life and times of Wisconsin's pioneer citizen-scientist.
     
     Martha Bergland:  After her retirement from teaching English at Milwaukee Area Technical College, Martha Bergland took a break to write an article on Lapham for Milwaukee Magazine. This break became five years of studying Increase Lapham. She has written two novels, A Farm Under a Lake and Idle Curiosity, both published by Graywolf, and is the recipient of a Pushcart Prize. She lives in Glendale, Wisconsin.
     
    Paul G. Hayes:  During 33 years at The Milwaukee Journal, science reporter Paul G. Hayes often relied on the work of Increase Lapham, whose home had been three blocks north of the newspaper office. After retiring in 1995, Hayes continued to write, often referring to Lapham and his contributions. This biography is a fitting finale to a fifty-year acquaintance. Paul and his wife live in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, where they raised two sons.

    PERIMETER: A CONTEMPORARY PORTRAIT OF LAKE MICHIGAN –Commissioned by the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University to create an artwork reflecting on the importance of freshwater, Milwaukee-based photographer Kevin J. Miyazaki embarked on a two-week, 1,800-mile drive around Lake Michigan. He traveled its perimeter, through Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan, to produce what he calls "a contemporary portrait of Lake Michigan." Miyazaki set up his portable studio on beaches, in parks, on boat docks, and in backyards, photographing those he met along the way. From residents, environmental scientists, and artists to a Native American water rights advocate, surfers, and commercial fishermen, Lake Michigan holds a powerful place in the life of each. Many shared their thoughts with him on why this body of water is important to all. Miyazaki also photographed the water as he went, creating waterscapes of the ever-changing lake affected by weather and time. 

    "A wonderfully perceptive interrogation of landscape, portraiture, cartography, and place." -Mary Louise Schumacher, art and architecture critic, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

    Kevin J. Miyazaki is a Milwaukee-based editorial and fine art photographer. His work has appeared in such publications as Martha Stewart Living, Travel + Leisure, Midwest Living, and The New York Times Magazine. His series Camp Home, in which he documents the reuse of Japanese internment camp barracks from World War II, has been exhibited at the Photo Center NW and SOIL Gallery in Seattle, the RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, and the James Watrous Gallery in Madison. Miyazaki’s work can be seen at kevinmiyazaki.com.

    It’s been a long time since Jesse Stone left L.A., and still longer since the tragic injury that ruined his chances for a major league baseball career. When Jesse is invited to a reunion of his old Triple-A team at a hip New York city hotel, he is forced to grapple with his memories and regrets over what might have been.

    Jesse left more behind him than unresolved feelings about the play that ended his baseball career. The darkly sensuous Kayla, his former girlfriend and current wife of an old teammate is there in New York, too. As is Kayla’s friend, Dee, an otherworldly beauty with secret regrets of her own. But Jesse’s time at the reunion is cut short when, in Paradise, a young woman is found murdered and her boyfriend, a son of one of the town’s most prominent families, is missing and presumed kidnapped.

    Though seemingly coincidental, there is a connection between the reunion and the crimes back in Paradise. As Jesse, Molly, and Suit hunt for the killer and for the missing son, it becomes clear that one of Jesse’s old teammates is intimately involved in the crimes. That there are deadly forces working below the surface and just beyond the edge of their vision. Sometimes, that’s where the danger comes from, and where real evil lurks. Not out in the light—but in your blind spot.       

    Robert B. Parker was the author of seventy books. He died in January 2010.

    Reed Farrel Coleman, called “a hard-boiled poet” by NPR’s Maureen Corrigan, is the Edgar-nominated author of eighteen novels and three novellas, including the critically acclaimed Moe Prager series. A three-time winner of the Shamus Award, he has also won the Anthony, Macavity, Barry and Audie awards. He teaches writing at Hofstra University and is a founding member of MWA University. He lives with his family on Long Island.

THE ENCHANTED

By: Rene Denfeld  

This novel is just what the title suggests, enchanting. The story is of the occupants of a prison and what life is really like there. From a prisoner on death row, to a priest, to a woman know n only as The Lady who is working on decreasing death row sentences to life in prison. All interweaving stories, each narrator tells of life and how good versus evil isn't necessarily as easy to pinpoint as one would have thought. I absolutely adored this book because of it’s lovely prose and characters that you can’t help but invest your emotions into. A great read for any book lover, I devoured this story and think of it fondly.

HAUNTED

by: Chuck Palahniuk 

Warning: not for the faint of heart! This is a collections= of grotesque short stories inside a novel. A group of authors see an ad in the paper for a writer's retreat. Little do they know, however, that it's not quite what they had in mind and not all is as it seems. With chapters alternating from a gruesome short strory by one of the authors to the events happening at the retreat, this is an exciting page turner. Uniquely Palahniuk, this contains some of the oddest and maybe grossest tales ever thought up. Perfect for the lover of the strange and insane, this is not a book I would suggest to everyone. However, if you ahve and open-mind(and maybe and empty stomach) give it a try!

Dark magic, southern customs, and deep emotions are found throughout; leaving your mind reeling after you finish. Bold and captivating, you'll want to read this all in one sitting and when you do, you'll be disappointed it's over. Unforgettable and intense, you don't want to miss this!
