Pioneer Public Television was on the road and in the community last weekend!
On Sunday, January 21 we headed to Milan to co-host a viewing party for the upcoming Postcards 2019 season! The event was well-attended with over 70 people gathering for conversation and an amazing, authentic Scandinavian spread complete with lefse, flatbread and rommegrot! Karen Jenson's doc was an inspiring look into her award-winning rosemaling career. Many friends, family and artists attended this amazing day and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
Next, we went on the road to Talking Waters Brewery in Montevideo on Monday, January 22 for the world premiere, sneak peek of the Talking Waters segment that aired on the 2019 Season 10 premiere of Postcards (you can watch it online or with the free PBS Video App.) The beer was flowing, the popcorn was buttery and conversation among friends was enjoyed by all. The Postcards team, Dana Conroy, Kris Gieske and Ben Dempcy were available to answer questions from the crowd—although the majority of the conversation was about how cute Postcards videographer/editor Ben’s baby, Nora, was! She made her Postcards debut in the Talking Waters piece.
If you haven't attended one of Pioneer Public Televisions public events, I really hope that you can soon to see what we’re all about. Keep an eye on our website and social media pages for upcoming events.
