Michael Perry Book Signing

The Volume One Gallery Located inside the Local Store at the Volume One World Headquarters, 205 N. Dewey St. Eau Claire, 54703
New York Times bestselling author Michael Perry will briefly discuss his new book “From the Top” at 2 p.m. followed by a book signing until 4 p.m.
"From the Top" is a collection of brief essays drawn from Michael Perry's weekly appearances on the nationally syndicated Tent Show Radio program and Wisconsin State Journal weekly columns The Wisconsin Historical Society Press invites readers under the canvas to enjoy Perry's newest yarns and observations. These essays capture the heart and the humor of Wisconsin life, allowing Perry the great freedom, he says, "… to ramble on about whatever comes to mind: oddly shod loggers, my last cup of coffee, love and lost fingers, useful cheaters, gratitude, and guys who get gozzled. Also, timeless infinity. And Victoria's Secret. In the same essay."
