Waterbury Campus
MPR 113-119

A book that took 30 years to compile, come hear readings from this tribute to her next-door neighbor / farmer who plowed with horses and then with tractors, and milked cows by hand into his late nineties. View her striking photos (taken over 16 years) and hear excerpts from Uncle John’s oral histories that he shared with her while out in the fields – these stories represent an unsentimental look at a bygone way of life.

Georgia Sheron is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, holding a master craftsman certificate, is a five-time recipient of the Kodak Award of Excellence and a six-time recipient of the Fuji Masterpiece Award for her photography.
