Salman Rushdie

It’s a damn busy night for Milwaukee: Not only do we get an appearance from a Beatle (it’s Ringo, but still) but also one from the infamous author Salman Rushdie, who reads from his newest book, The Enchantress Of Florence, a meticulously researched tome set in the Mughal Empire, tonight at 7 p.m. at the Schwartz Bookshop in Shorewood. Rushdie’s breathless prose is exciting in its own right, but it risks being overshadowed by that ever-so-slight chance that one of Ayatolla Ruhollah Khomeini’s assassins may emerge and try to off the controversial novelist. Here’s hoping Schwartz Bookshop has strong security.

 

Poll

The U.S. Supreme Court announced that it will hear the case to determine if Wisconsin Republicans’ redistricting maps are too partisan. Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
