Book Launch: Horse Drawn Yogurt, by Peter Gould

"As a writer, physical comedian, theatre director, and professor of peace and coexistence, Peter Gould has been a role model and a stellar cultural worker, far beyond Total Loss Farm, the commune where young Peter came in from the cold. In HORSE DRAWN YOGURT, Peter offers his take on how we lived in times that seem exotic, yet oddly familiar. His writing is eloquent, whimsical, magical, musical, and tender."


The book launch is also a pot luck meal and author reading, and all are invited to bring a dish to share. 

HORSE DRAWN YOGURT is the newest publication of Green Writers Press. "It's kind of a sequel to BURNT TOAST and HOME COMFORT," says Peter.
