On Tuesday, October 1st from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the Friends of the UW-Madison Libraries is hosting a free event, open to the public, in honor of Jerry Apps’s newest book, The Quiet Season: Remembering Country Winters. A best-selling regional author, Jerry Apps will read from and talk about his newest book, in which he recalls winters on his family’s Wisconsin farm during the Great Depression and World War II. He describes how winter influenced farm families and his belief that people are “profoundly affected in ways we don’t often realize” by harsh northern winters. The event also features A Farm Winter with Jerry Apps, a companion documentary, to be aired later in the year on Wisconsin Public Television. Copies of his book will be available, along with refreshments.
