MILWAUKEE — Dan Egan, a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and author of “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes,” will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Sept. 6, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in the Lubar Center at Marquette University Law School’s Eckstein Hall.

A two-time Pulitzer finalist, Egan has been writing about the Great Lakes for years. His deep knowledge of the largest group of freshwater lakes on earth is on full display in his 2017 book, which has received substantial critical praise. The importance of the Great Lakes is hard to overstate, with more than 35 million people depending on them for drinking water. Yet the lakes face significant man-made threats, from invasive species to algal blooms. Egan will outline these issues during his visit to the Law School.

Gousha, an award-winning broadcast journalist, is the Law School’s distinguished fellow in law and public policy. His “On the Issues” series of conversations with newsmakers supports Marquette Law School’s commitment to serve as a modern-day public square for the city of Milwaukee, the state of Wisconsin and beyond.

Through public programming such as the Marquette Law School Poll, debates featuring candidates in significant political races, Gousha’s “On the Issues” conversations with newsmakers, public lectures by leading scholars and conferences on significant issues of public importance, the Law School serves as the region’s leading venue for serious civil discourse about law and public policy matters.

The event is open to members of the general public at no cost; registration is required and is available online.
