Apples in Winter is the story of a mother making an apple pie. The last pie that her son will ever eat as he sits on death row. As she prepares the pie, she struggles with how her son's life could have turned out this way. Too she questions whether her actions led to his circumstance. Apples in Winter has won the NNPN Smith Prize and the Susan Glaspell Award.
