SDSU Extension will be hosting a virtual book read on Thursdays in March beginning on March 4, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. CST until March 25.
“Population: 485 - Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time” by Michael Perry
Welcome to New Auburn, Wisconsin (population: 485) where the local vigilante is a farmer’s wife armed with a pistol and a Bible, the most senior member of the volunteer fire department is a cross-eyed butcher with one kidney and two ex-wives (both of whom work at the only gas station in town), and the back roads are haunted by the ghosts of children and farmers. Michael Perry loves this place. He grew up here, and now—after a decade away—he has returned.
