May 20, 2017 – Richfield, WI – The Richfield Historical Society invites you to “Never Curse the Rain” by Jerry Apps, on Thursday, May 25, at 7 p.m., at the Richfield Fire Hall, 2008 State Road 175.
Admission is free and open to the Richfield Historical Society Members and the general public.
Mr. Apps is a celebrated rural storyteller and an award-winning author with more than 40 non-fiction and fiction books.
He was born and raised on a central Wisconsin farm before electricity, indoor plumbing and central heating. Professionally he served as a county extension agent and professor at the University of Wisconsin College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in Madison Wisconsin.
“Never Curse the Rain” is his latest book in which he shares his memories of water, from its importance to crops and cattle to its many recreational uses – fishing trips, canoe journeys, and the simple pleasure of an afternoon spent dreaming in the hay mow as the rain patters on a barn roof.
