Air Date:
Heard On Route 51

Thursday, January 19 at 10 am, author Jerry Apps returns to Wisconsin Public Radio’s Route 51 to discuss his new book, Never Curse the Rain: A Farm Boy’s Reflections on Water.

Host Glen Moberg will ask Apps about the importance of our water resources in north central Wisconsin to farmers and the public at large, and his thoughts on balancing its use for agriculture, drinking water, and maintaining the health of our lakes, rivers and streams. Apps, reflecting on his childhood, says “when it rained, it was cause for celebration. Indeed, if ever the Apps boys complained about a rainy day spoiling their plans, their father admonished, ‘Never curse the rain,’ for the family’s very livelihood depended on it.”
