St. Peter Reads is pleased to present its Annual Spring Author Brunch on Saturday, May 16, 2015, in the Banquet Rooms, Jackson Campus Center of Gustavus Adolphus College. The event begins at 9:30 a.m. and will feature humorist and author, Michael Perry and his fictional debut, The Jesus Cow, which officially releases three days after the St. Peter appearance. Michael is no stranger to this area as he was a featured speaker in March 2006 when he delighted the audience with his memoir, Population: 485 - Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time, and again in October of that same year, when he talked about his book, Truck: A Love Story.

The ticketed event also features several other authors as they rotate among the tables, in what is referred to as a Moveable Feast. Authors include Jan Holte, Roger McKnight, Charlie Quimby, Dale Redlin, Jim Rogers, Curt Stolee, Sarah Stonich, Shelley Tougas, Laurie Wetzel, Allen Eskens, Geoff Herbach and Rachael Hanel.

All authors will be available following the Brunch to sign their books, which will be available for purchase. The public is invited to this time of book signing, which begins at 12 Noon.

Reservations can be made at or by calling the Saint Peter Community Education office, 507-934-3048. The cost of the Brunch, catered by the Dining Service of Gustavus Adolphus College, is $22. Seating is limited.

"This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Traverse des Sioux Library System, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. e/span>
