Even at my non-famous level (9 out of 10 times no one recognizes me at the Farm & Fleet) (and then half the time it’s a relative, neighbor, or Moose Country 106.7 listener), my calendar is such that I meet many, many thoughtful people in passing and simply cannot do justice to their kindnesses or adequately recognize their hard work or support their latest project the way they might hope and deserve. In addition, my email and snail-mailbox overflows weekly with manuscripts, CDs, advance copies, digital links and attachments, and requests for me to review or discuss more smart, powerful writing and heartfelt art than I could lay my eyes on if it was my full-time job. That said, I keep a box of books and notes and CDs and miscellaneous objects given to me on the roa, and when I can I jot a note or make a mention. Thus, Posts from the Box.
Greg Peck has always been kind to me; his most recent kindness was a quiet word on the side about some errors that slipped through one of my manuscripts. There are ways to handle these things, and he did it right.
Greg has a new book out about growing up in Wisconsin in the ’70s.
Yep, that silo is in free-fall.
Greg says the best way to order copies of “Memories of Marshall, Ups and Downs of Growing Up in a Small Town,” is to contact him directly at [email protected], on his Facebook page or through the Marshall Area Historical Society’s Facebook page.
Here’s a review of the book for more background.
