Second Saturdays – The Quiet Season
Remembering Country Winters with Jerry Apps
In this program, we will screen and preview the newest WPT documentary featuring Jerry Apps.
As we will see as we watch and analyze “The Quiet Season, Remembering Country Winters”, Jerry recalls winters growing up on a farm in central Wisconsin during the latter years of the Depression and through World War II.
Wisconsin winters then were a time of reflection, of planning for next year, and of families drawing together. Jerry describes how winter influenced farm families and suggests that those of us who grow up with harsh northern winters are profoundly affected in ways we often are not aware.
