Taste Traditions of Wisconsin: "Whispers and Shadows" with Jerry Apps
Author and historian Jerry Apps discusses his latest work, Whispers and Shadows: A Naturalist's Memoir, exploring such topics as the human need for wilderness, rediscovering a sense of wonder, and his father’s advice to “listen for the whispers” and “look in the shadows” to learn nature’s deepest lessons. Apps draws on a lifetime of experiences, from his earliest years growing up on a central Wisconsin farm to his current ventures as a gardener, tree farmer, and steward of wetlands, prairies, and endangered Karner blue butterflies. With his eloquent words, Apps reminds us to slow down, turn off technology, and allow our senses to reconnect us to the natural world. A dinner highlighting the natural ingredients of Wisconsin will be served, and a book signing will follow the presentation. Advance registration required for this event.
