"I recently tested an electrified pig fencer by grabbing it with my bare hands. As the fibrillations dispersed, I regarded the unit--now pulsing in the grass some fifteen feet distant, where it landed after I spastically flung it--dumbly, then resolved to take the rest of the afternoon off and curl up with the late Michel de Montaigne's essay "Of the Inconsistency of Our Actions."" - from the Introduction to "Montaigne in Barn Boots" by Michael Perry. Read with us! Get your copy at the library.

"Based on our backgrounds, I wouldn't expect to find much in common with Michel de Montaigne. He is permanently deceased in France; I am temporarily alive in Wisconsin. He was a nobleman born to nobility; I was born to a paper mill worker and a nurse. He was privately tutored in Latin from the age of two and enrolled in the University of Toulouse to study law when he was fourteen; I matriculated as a barn-booted bumpkin who still marks a second-place finish in the sixth-grade spelling bee as an intellectual pinnacle." - Michael Perry from "Montaigne in Barn Boots." Read with us! Pick up your copy today at the library.
