Books by local authors and other Wisconsin ties
Madison Magazine – Winter 2018

While we turn the page to 2018, now is as good a time as any to pick up a great book and put a dent in your yearly reading list. Below, our staff recommends 10 books—some brand new this year—written by local authors. We’ve also included a few books written by some of our very own contributors to Madison Magazine, as well as a list of 32 other books written by local authors or books that have Wisconsin ties. We’d say that part of the fun of starting a new book is the time you get to yourself—maybe wrapping up with a blanket by the fire and sipping on a cup of coffee or cocoa. (But that’s not even the best part—we hear that comes in chapter 10.)

“In Warm Blood: Prison and Privilege, Hurt and Heart” by Judith Gwinn Adrian and DarRen Morris
This is a story of two people—a respected and accomplished professor at Edgewood College and an inmate at Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage serving a life term for murder—whose lives could not be more different and whose relationship could not be more profound. It’s a book about inherent differences and discovered similarities, told with brutal honesty and heartrending beauty. HenschelHAUS Publishing Inc., 2014 –NH
