From the history of the red light district to the downfall of the whiskey distilleries, the book "Wicked Milwaukee" chronicles the wicked people in Milwaukee’s past. These are the stories of people that weren’t necessarily evil, but were put in the category of bad people your mother warned you against. Joining us to discuss the book and his inspiration to write it is author Yance Marti.

Yance has a book talk and signing on November 5 at 6pm at the offices of Historic Milwaukee (235 E Michigan Street). For more information, visit
