Preorder Michael Perry's New Book Roughneck Grace

Local Store Shopkeep

From the Wisconsin Historical Society Press, a collection of brief essays (including his popular “Gratitude” piece) from the Sunday Wisconsin State Journal column, Roughneck Grace. Perry’s perspectives on everything from cleaning the chicken coop to sharing a New York City elevator with supermodels will have you snorting with laughter on one page, blinking back tears on the next, and — no matter your zip code — nodding in recognition throughout.

Join us Saturday, October 1 at 7pm for a reading and signing with Michael Perry in the Volume One Gallery at The Local Store.
