This is a quest to find a particular couple who may or may not be from Madison County. Here's the story: Many years ago, at the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Meeting, there were "silent auctions". At one of those auctions I bought a the book "The Bridges of Madison County". The book was signed by Oprah Whinfey, as well as others associated with the movie. Does anyone know who these people be? I'd love to connect with them and hear any more they may have to share about the book. Thanks in advance for any information anyone can pass along to me.
