Perry has an Official Book, Henry Loves Hills

October 1, 2015

A new book titled 'Henry Loves Hills' has been selected as Perry's Offical Book. It is a tale of a school bus named Henry who travels the rolling hills of the scenic Perry area, safely delivering children to school and home. Henry, driven by Ed, confronts and overcomes his biggest challenge during a raging January snow storm, inspired by the Blizzard of 1977. Sally Snowplow helps out.

The book is written by Perry native Patrick Brennan and loosely recounts an experience he had on a school bus ride during the Blizzard of '77. Dan Butler, Perry resident, illustrated the book.

Perry's Official Book is a project of Read Around Perry, a Perry Rotary Initiative, and the Town of Perry Bicentennial Committee.
