The Pioneer Bookshop Book Club will discuss Coop by Michael Perry on Thursday, July 1, 2010. I had the pleasure of meeting Michael at the Midwest Booksellers meeting in 2009. He is delightfully funny and very modest. His description of the perfect dairy cow had those in the room roaring with laughter. Unfortunately, that description was not included in Coop so I feel lucky to have heard him tell it. There are plenty of other laugh-out-loud stories in this book. A perfect summer read.

Meetings are the first Thursday of the month at 7 pm at the Pioneer Bookshop, 823 Fourth Avenue.
