Stop by the library to pick up a free copy of our first Plain Reads title: Population 485: Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time.
Read the book anytime in October and join in for An Evening with Michael Perry, Thursday, October 27th, 7pm in the Community Room. The library is celebrating 20 years!
Michael Perry is a New York Times bestselling author, humorist, playwright, and radio show host from New Auburn, Wisconsin. Perry’s bestselling memoirs include Population: 485 (recently adapted for the stage), Truck: A Love Story, Coop, Visiting Tom, Million Billion, Peaceful Persistence, and Hunker. Among his other dozen titles are the Scavengers (for young readers) and his novel The Jesus Cow.
Raised on a small Midwestern dairy farm, Perry put himself through nursing school while working on a ranch in Wyoming, then detoured into writing. He lives with his wife and two daughters in rural Wisconsin, where he still makes an occasional call with the local volunteer fire and rescue service. He hosts the nationally-syndicated “Tent Show Radio,” performs widely as a humorist, and tours with his band the Long Beds. His three live humor albums include Never Stand Behind A Sneezing Cow and The Clodhopper Monologues. He can be found online at www.sneezingcow.com. Michael also hosts a subscription audio newsletter at www.michaelperry.substack.com.
The event is free to all ages.
