Flew The Coop!

Michael Perry appeared at Milltown for a book reading the other night. I couldn't miss the opportunity to see a gen-you-wine real live author. He is the author of the bestselling memoirs Population 485: Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time, Truck: A Love Story and Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs and Parenting, as well as the essay collection Off Main Street. Perry has written for Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Outside, Backpacker, Orion and, and is a contributing editor to Men’s Health.

He can be found online at

Raised on a small dairy farm right here in Wisconsin, Perry equates his writing career to cleaning calf pens – just keep shoveling, and eventually you’ve got a pile so big, someone will notice.
