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."
Whispers and Shadows: a naturalist's memoir will be officially released right here in our village on Wednesday, April 22, 2015. Apps-e-tizers at 6pm til 6:30, Book Talk from 6:30 til 7:00, then we'll have a signing in the library from 7-7:45 or so. We'll have plenty of books so no worries about us running out!
Just a reminder that this book has been made into a documentary by WPTV and in November, our little Village of Wild Rose will host the World Premier Showing at the Wild Rose High School Auditorium.
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!
