Doug Schmidt set out to pinpoint the roots of Milwaukee’s continued interest in bowling in his latest book, They Came to Bowl, ultimately linking the sport’s local popularity to our city’s German heritage. In the process, he also dug up plenty of amusing anecdotes and factual tidbits. Tonight Schmidt talks about the book at a 7 p.m. appearance at the Brookfield Schwartz Bookshop location.
