Just when you thought Jerry was too busy to write any more books - his next book has been released! Titled "The Quiet Season - remembering country winters." This book is a companion to the new DVD coming out in November by Wisconsin Public TV - "A Farm Winter with Jerry Apps." To celebrate both of these releases, the Patterson Memorial Library in Wild Rose in partnership with the Wild Rose High School, WPTV and the Wisconsin Historical Society Press is hosting "An Evening with Jerry Apps."
We will be having copies of the new WPTV documentary, A Farm Winter with Jerry Apps: Remembering Country Winters, but do not have a date for shipping yet, they are being very soon. Watch this space for the announcement!
We are completely sold out of Jerry Apps: A Farm Story, which we will not be able to purchase again until February, in accordance with the arrangement between WPTV and PBS. When it becomes available again for sale we'll let you know!
We have a brand new display - dead ahead as you enter the library! Help us celebrate 50 years of James Bond (1962-2012) by checking out a book and movie title together! Our popular "Read the Book - Watch the Movie" display has a Big Brother in Bond! All the movies and all the books are together - whichever Bond you like (how many have their been?), you 'll have a rousing good time reading the original novel, then watching the movie!
We'll also be running a trivia contest in August, so start reading and watching!
