Jacqueline Jackson recounts the history of her family's farm, from dairy to hybrid seed corn production, childhood fun, and events and changes during the Great Depression. She reads from her book, 'Stories from the Round Barn,' and talks about becoming a professor of creative writing.
In Jackie Jackson's 2008 interview with Mike Maniscalco (Illinois State Museum), Mike finished by asking Jackie what she envisioned for the future of agriculture. She answered briefly at the time, but gives a much fuller accounting of her views in the 2015 interview. She also discusses the inspiration for her series of books entitled, 'The Round Barn,' and an overview of the four volume series, all published after her first interview in 2008.
