ERMPL to host afternoon with Michael Perry
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library (ERMPL) will host an author event with Michael Perry on July 14 at 1 p.m., to be followed by discussion and a book signing.
Perry’s bestselling memoirs include “Population: 485,” “Truck: A Love Story,” “Coop,” “Visiting Tom,” and “Montaigne in Barn Boots: An Amateur Ambles Through Philosophy.”
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 serves on the local volunteer fire and rescue service and is an intermittent pig farmer.
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.”
The author event will be held in the Drendel Room of the Second Street Community Center, 211 E. Second St., Marshfield.
