Meet the author of “Death Beyond the Willows” on Tuesday, October 13 at 1 pm. This is a true story surrounding a 1927 tragedy of a young couple from Marshall, WI.  Johnny Pirkl and Hazel Ferguson were from farm families. A wedding-night tragedy made national news and left both families grieving for decades.  Since this book was published it has inspired three bus tours of key sites and stunning coincidental stories that emerged and brought this rich history full circle.  Peck worked for WI newspapers for the past 36 years, still serves as the Opinion Page editor of “The Gazette” in Janesville and has won a variety of journalism and nonfiction awards, as well as served on the board of directors of the WI Writers Association.
