A Farm Winter with Jerry Apps

Thurs Jan 29 – $10

Award-winning writer and historian Jerry Apps, born and raised on a Wisconsin farm, is both professor Emeritus at UW-Madison and the author of more than 30 books, many of them on rural history and country life.  In collaboration with Wisconsin Public Television, we will view a screening of “Jerry Apps: A Farm Winter” – a portrait of Wisconsin farm life seen through the eyes of a boy growing up in harsh Waushara County winters during the Great Depression and World War II. Apps recalls a time before electricity on the farm, when farmers milked cows by hand and "making wood" was a major part of winter's work.  After the screening, Jerry will lead us in a discussion of winters in rural Wisconsin.
