WAPL 2007: Never stand behind a sneezing cow

Wisconsin author Michael Perry entertained a full-house crowd at the Thursday luncheon.

Perry, whose new book is Truck: a Love Story, showed why he is in high demand as a library speaker. His remarks and readings showed him to be a gifted wordsmith as well as a family man, nurse, poet, raconteur, down-to-earth intellectual and a pretty funny guy.

He talked about his love for libraries and reading, recalling how his mother had taught him to value the time sitting quietly with a book, and remembering childhood trips to the library. Attendees also learned valuable lessons on many topics, including lambing, chickens and Ford F150s.
