Badger State – A Wisconsin Memoir is the story of an Irish Catholic family’s move from suburban Chicago to Southeastern Wisconsin in the mid-1970s.  The book is told through the eyes of the youngest of six siblings, and addresses economic uncertainty and disparity, as well as Midwestern education and culture within the town of Racine, Wisconsin.  Badger State examines the challenges met and overcome by a family encountering change over the course of two decades. It is entertaining and moving, while evoking poignant memories of childhood.
