Join local author Michael Perry for a reading and release of his new title, Montaigne in Barn Boots. The author discovered the great French essayist Michel de Montaigne courtesy of a kidney stone. After passing “the Devil’s own gobstopper,” Perry—volunteer firefighter, chronicler of contemporary rural life, and dubbed “the real thing” by USA Today—began researching renal calculi and discovered that Montaigne—the 16th century inventor of the essay form—had documented his own kidney stone experience. From this oddball introduction, Perry plunged headlong into the works of Montaigne. The raw, vulnerable, and hilarious result is Montaigne in Barn Boots: An Amateur Ambles through Philosophy
