Join Broward County Libraries Director Allison Grubbs and Florida Man and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Dave Barry, in a spirited discussion of his new book, “Swamp Story”, now in stores.
Dave Barry won a Pulitzer Prize for his commentary when he was a wildly popular columnist and has scads of bestselling books to his name. His annual year-in-review articles are eagerly awaited and cherished by readers everywhere.
But more importantly, Dave is a Florida Man.
In Swamp Story, his first novel in 10 years, Dave draws on his keen insight as a denizen of the Sunshine State to produce a classic Florida caper full of oddballs, criminals, and schemes that has more twists and turns than an Everglades snake. It’s so rambunctious, clever, and funny, it inspired Steve Martin to blurb it five times.
A book signing will be held at the end of the event.
The event is free, but seating is limited. Register here.
