Friday on Lake Effect:
Chicago writer Rebecca Makkai talks about capturing the essence of the AIDS epidemic in places like Illinois and Wisconsin in the mid-1980s and early '90s for her latest novel. Then, in a season of flooding, a new art exhibit puts a more positive spin on water. Plus, we learn the story of the man who started the best-known store at Milwaukee's General Mitchell International Airport.
