Anne-Marie Cusac

Jacqueline Dougan Jackson is a regional treasure. She's a prominent children's writer and the author of 12 books. One of them, "The Taste of Spruce Gum", was a 1968 runner-up for the Newberry Medal. Now 84 years old, Jackson still produces important work that reveals the power and heart of Midwestern life. Her newest work of nonfiction, "The Round Barn: A Biography of an American Farm", is a remarkable compendium of family life on a Wisconsin dairy farm. more
