Of the many robust scenes developing in Eau Claire, local literature is perhaps the most intriguing. There’s more than one New York Times bestseller in our midst. And as is the case with our music and art, the landscape and work ethic of this place frequently in uences the writing that’s created. A handful of locally-inspired lines are painted on the walls of rooms in the Main House, as well as in the common areas and hallways. As you explore you may discover the work of author/humorist Michael Perry, novelist Nickolas Butler, poet Max Garland, author John Hildebrand, poet Jason Splichal, columnist Mike Paulus, poet Patti See, or author BJ Hollars.
