May 31 @ 5:30 pm
In this presentation we will learn why the sisters, Jackie and Janine Pfeiffer, decided to write a book about their childhood memories of the 1950’s. We will learn the background and how the documenting led to publication of their book, While the Windmill Watched: A Slice of Rural America in the 1950’s. Jackie and Janine grew up on the plains of North Dakota near Menoken, just 10 miles east of Bismarck, North Dakota. The book is not only a memoir but also an historical account which highlights technological changes that advanced comfort and prosperity for rural America. They will include information about their Germans from Russia Heritage through their paternal grandmother, Justina Brost Pfeiffer. You may wish to check out Memoir | While the Windmill Watched | Home
