Belle and Bob La Follette: Partners in Politics
In Wisconsin politics, there is no more famous couple than Bob and Belle La Follette. The father of "Progressive politics," "Fighting Bob" was famous for rolling up his sleeves and fighting to reform government corruption. A formidable activist in her own right, Belle was an advocate for world peace, an agitator for the women's vote, the first woman to graduate from the University of Wisconsin's Law School, and Bob's most trusted advisor. Hear tales about the La Follettes' lives and battles for justice. Bob Kann is a storyteller, lecturer, and author of several Badger Biographies. A book signing will follow the program.
