Best-selling author Jim Crace stops by the Downer Avenue Schwartz Bookshop location tonight at 7 p.m. to read from his latest novel, The Pesthouse, which is now available in paperback. The story is Crace’s most epic yet: In a vaguely post-apocalyptic American future, where much of society has crumbled and much of the population has died off, a heroic protagonist and a woman he discovered left for dead race to catch a boat to Europe.


A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
