Michael Perry's "The Jesus Cow" Release Reading & Signing
The Volume One Gallery Located inside the Local Store at the Volume One World Headquarters, 205 N. Dewey St. Eau Claire, 54703
With his eye (and ear) for the comical elements of contemporary rural life, New York Times-bestselling author Michael Perry has built a loyal audience with his popular memoirs Visiting Tom and Population 485. Now, for the first time, he turns to fiction with THE JESUS COW (released May 19th), an affectionately skewed and big-hearted depiction of one miraculous bovine and the chaos it unleashes.
