Stay Booked With Some Summer Reads
If there’s one thing the Chippewa Valley does right, it’s writing. (Pun intended.) Especially when it comes to local favorites like Michael Perry, Nickolas Butler, and B.J. Hollars, who coincidentally all have relatively new books out: Big Boy’s Big Rig: The Leftovers, Little Faith, and Midwestern Strange: Hunting Monsters, Martians and the Weird in Flyover Country, respectively. Eau Claire’s indie book store Dotter’s Books also curates a list of Chippewa Valley favorites, available on their website at dottersbooks.com. The shop offers great recommendations, curbside pickup, and delivery options for all your reading needs. No excuses!
