Author Lesley Kagen was at Vliet Street's Perpendicular wine bar recently to promote her critcally acclaimed book, "Whistling in the Dark."
The book takes place on Milwaukee's west side, including Vliet St (Perpindicular, by the way, is at 5000 W. Vliet St.), back in the days when the Zoo was in Washington Park and kids ran around seeking dinner at whichever neighbors had the best food.
Kagen, who attended Hi-Mount and St. Sebastian schools, is no stranger to public speaking. She temporarily abandoned metro Milwaukee for California, where she did voice-overs for commercials -- you may recognize her voice: "Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman."
Thanks to Perpendicular for promoting a local author. Pretty good wine, too.
