Fiction has three main elements - Plotting, character and setting. But here in Wisconsin, sometimes the setting becomes a character on its own. These authors will talk about how critical the state of Wisconsin is to their work and what makes Wisconsin so special on the page. Moderated by UWGB's David Voelker.
