Local author Eric Bergeson will discuss his book Off the Farm: A Collection of Essays at the University of Minnesota Crookston Bookstore, located in the new student center on the UMC campus at 2900 University Way, on Friday, August 19 at 3:30 p.m.

Off the Farm is a collection of essays which originally appeared as newspaper columns from 2001-2003. In this, his third book, Bergeson focuses on ventures away from home, including his travels to places as far-flung as London, Paris, and New York City, to simple trips to town for a meeting or a half-gallon of milk.

Bergeson, a third generation owner of Bergeson Nursery in Fertile, Minnesota is a frequent speaker and performer and a teaching specialist at the University of Minnesota Crookston campus. 

The UMC Bookstore is hosting Bergeson as part of their Community Open House during Crookston’s Ox Cart Days.

Bergeson will sign copies of his book following the discussion. The event is free and open to the public.
