Stories of the Land: Farm Life from an Earlier Day

Well-known Wisconsin author and researcher Jerry Apps will be presenting on his book “Stories of the Land: Farm Life from an Earlier Day” for a presentation on Thursday July 16, at 6:30 pm in the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek. Apps was born and raised on a central Wisconsin farm. Jerry is the author of more than 35 nonfiction, fiction, and children’s books with topics that range from barns, one-room schools, cranberries, cucumbers, cheese factories, and the humor of mid-America to farming with horses and the Ringling Brothers circus. He has completed two PBS TV documentaries  on farm life, “A Farm Story with Jerry Apps,” and “Winter on the Farm with Jerry Apps,” which have aired nationally. The latter won a regional Emmy award in 2014.
