“The Saint of Dry Creek” online release

In celebration of Pride Month, we want to share a StoryCorps favorite: the 2016 Sundance Film Festival selection, “The Saint of Dry Creek.”

Patrick Haggerty grew up the son of a dairy farmer in rural Washington during the 1950s. As a teenager, Patrick began to find himself. At StoryCorps, Patrick told his daughter, Robin, about the day his father, Charles Edward Haggerty, decided to have a serious talk with him.
