It’s an unrelentingly heavy book…a couple of winters back, I was trying to save my pole barns…it just hit me in the middle of the night…if they fall down, that’s all you’re going to lose…

Michael Perry

Artist, Author, Humorist, Playwright,

We reconnected with Michael Perry, we chatted about the themes of his new book “Forty Acres Deep”, we got into the author’s hesitation with the book, a winter shed collapse that inspired it, and the agricultural mental health movement that touches on depression and anxiety.

Catch Michael Perry LIVE at the Pump House Regional Arts Center.
