Over the summer, we traveled the state to talk to our hometown authors. We asked them about reading and writing and the books that stay with you throughout a lifetime. 

Jerry and Norma Wilson are both writers and life partners. This past summer, we visited them at their house in Vermillion. A house that was built by their own hands with a specific purpose. They shared the story behind their residence and how its location in Southeast South Dakota has affected their work.

Then, we asked Jerry what makes a really great book.
