    Event Description:
    Meet Corey Geiger, dairy farmer, 28-year Hoard’s Dairyman editor, and author of On a Wisconsin Family Farm: Historic Tales of Character, Community and Culture and it’s recently released follow-up, On the Wisconsin Family Farm They Built: Tales of Family and Fortitude (ranked as Amazon’s #1 Midwest Biography new release this June). UW-Madison graduate Corey—who reluctantly left the dairy barn to attend college after an ultimatum from his forward-thinking father— will share the quintessentially Wisconsin roots of this award-winning book, which centers on six generations of farm life in America’s Dairyland. The farm is his own family’s and his source material includes many well-oiled stories absorbed at the knees of grandparents and family elders, who were an integral part of his childhood and always eager to relate memories of days gone by. Those with rural connections will find the Geiger’s anecdotes familiar-sounding and sometimes poignant. All will hear about a way of life, once a shared experience of many Wisconsinites, that is fast disappearing. This book reading and presentation is free, family-friendly and open to the public; reservations are not required. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., with plenty of time after the event to purchase books and have them signed by the author. For more information, call 608-437-6486 or email mthorebahs@gmail.com.
