The 2014 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Chancellor’s Regional Literary Award will be given to Pulitzer Prize-winning science writer Deborah Blum, who also is Helen Firstbrook Franklin Professor of Journalism at UW-Madison. On Monday, October 27, Ms. Blum will provide a reading and book signing from 7-9 pm in the University Center’s Summers Auditorium.
