Wisconsin Life on Wisconsin Public Television Features Madison’s Margaret Ingraham

Wisconsin Life continues to highlight the stories of notable Wisconsinites — from Waukesha to Washburn and everywhere in between — bringing to life the humorous, surprising and sometimes emotional tales of those who call Wisconsin home.

With the return of new episodes of Wisconsin Life, viewers can see all-new stories from different communities across the state. These stories include that of the Madison-based Taliesin tour guide Margaret Ingraham in the new episode premiering 8 p.m. Monday, July 28 on Wisconsin Public Television (WPT).

Margaret Ingraham went from having a successful career as a stage actress to having a second act in her career. Today, Ingraham is one of the most popular tour guides at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin estate, proving that she hasn’t lost her knack for performing.

Tune into Wisconsin Life to learn more about Ingraham’s career both onstage and as a tour guide. This episode of Wisconsin Life will also feature other stories from across the state, including a Beloit anthropologist who is guiding students in their studies of Native American artifacts and a Janesville resident whose obsession with cookie jars has led to a vast collection.
