Join us for Garden Vision's fifth annual Slow Food Dinner. This sit-down dining experience will include a short talk about slow food, and presentation by Michael Perry. Michael Perry is a New York Times best-selling author, humorist, playwright, and radio show host from New Auburn, WI.  Perry's books include Population 485, The Jesus Cow, Montaigne in Barn Boots, and the (non)gardening book Truck: A Love Story.  His "Roughneck Grace" column appears weekly in the Wisconsin State Journal and he can be found online at www.sneezingcow.com.  Drawing on his best-selling memoirs and his experiences as a failed gardener, Michael Perry provides a humorous heartfelt look into his relationship with food of all sorts, from gas station jerky to organic asparagus truffle foam.
