Updike house featured in new PBS short film

WITF, the PBS affiliate television station in Harrisburg, Pa., recently produced a five-and-a-half minute film on “John Updike’s Shillington” for a national series titled “Great American Read.” These clips will be shown across the country, as we understand it.

And the film on Updike and Shillington prominently features the house, with John Updike Society members Richard Androne, Peter Bailey, and David Silcox appearing on camera to talk about Updike and the community that meant so much to him. The film was shot in and around the house with the help of Dave Ruoff, who was on hand to open the building and direct traffic.
