Wendell Affield recently discovered a 1987 recording of his mother Barbara on her piano as she played the old Masters in the living room of the old farmhouse in Nebish, Minnesota. He recorded the mini-concert on an early VHS recorder. Twenty-four years after this recording was made, after Barbara died, Wendell discovered her secrets locked in the Chickenhouse and in the attic of the old farmhouse. Secrets about how she became a concert pianist and her struggle with mental illness.
These mysteries are the subject of Wendell’s fourth book, “Barbara,” coming Autumn 2021.
