Known most widely as the author of “Population 485,” the story of a volunteer firefighter and EMT in a small Wisconsin town, Perry’s heartfelt brand of humorous storytelling has made him a popular speaker and performer for audiences of all backgrounds.
Raised on a small Wisconsin dairy farm, Perry put himself through nursing school while working as a cowboy in Wyoming, then unexpectedly wound up writing for a living. These days when he’s not on the road performing or hosting “Tent Show Radio,” he lives on a small farm with his wife and two daughters where he writes books, a weekly “Roughneck Grace” column for the Wisconsin State Journal, and develops music projects with Grammy-winning musicians.
This program is sponsored by the Augusta School District, Augusta Area Foundation, Friends of the Augusta Library, Augusta Senior and Community Center, and Friends of the Cadott Library.
