Author Corey Geiger will be signing copies of his new book, “On a Wisconsin Family Farm,”
Saturday May 15th – 9am – 1pm at Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center.
“On a Wisconsin Family Farm flings the barn doors wide open to a cast of characters who have long passed this world. A maternal maverick, Anna Satorie, went against cultural norms and became the sole owner of her family’s homestead in 1905. The next year, Anna married John Burich and the couple went about building a thrifty family farm. Pioneer life was fraught with trials and tribulations as polio and tuberculosis claimed loved ones and the fabricated death of a bootlegging brother turned gangsters away from the farm. Neighbors join the narrative as the immigrant class aided one another to construct farmsteads and develop a support network that included unsanctioned bank loans, daring dynamite work, hard labor to raise barns and subsequent parties met by the rooster’s early-dawn crow. Corey Geiger, international agricultural journalist, pairs his rural roots and lively storytelling talents to capture six generations of local tales.”
