Weird Wisconsin Book

Sunday’s Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel has an article about a new book called, “Weird Wisconsin,” co-written by Madison law librarian and “student of weirdology,” Richard Hendricks.

According to Hendricks: “We are the weirdest state,” he says. “We’re outside the mainstream. The early settlers here were a motley crew running away from somewhere else. Malcontents came here for the chance to live the life they wanted to live. That individuality hasn’t been stamped into conformity like in some other places.”

The books is available from Barnes & Noble Books at a cost of $19.95.
