UW-Madison alums Mayer, Nevers co-found Fuller’s Windy Acres Farm Press

April 05, 2019

UW–Madison School of Education alumni and sisters Judith Mayer and Gillin Nevers have co-founded a press, Fuller’s Windy Acres Farm Press.

Named after their grandfather’s farm, who also attended UW-Madison, the press is dedicated to publishing illustrated limited edition books.  

Mayer received her bachelor's degree from the School of Education in 1962, and her master's in 1968. Nevers received her bachelor's degree from the School of Education in 1967.

They have recently published “The Request,” which was authored by fellow UW-Madison graduate Susan Connors and illustrated by Mayer. 

Drawn from true events, “The Request” follows a young Wisconsin woman living in the early years of the 20th century who was unjustly imprisoned for love. This story of betrayal and deliverance raises important and timely questions related to fairness and justice.
