We are thrilled to welcome Carl Hiaasen to Louisville on September 30th, at 7pm. This event will be held at Louisville Collegiate School // 2427 Glenmary Ave, Louisville, KY 40204
The #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Carl Hiaasen serves up his unique brand of swamp-justice in "Skink--No Surrender."
Malley--to avoid being shipped off to boarding school, she takes off
with some guy she met online. Poor Richard--he knows his cousin's in
trouble before she does. Wild Skink--he's a ragged, one-eyed ex-governor
of Florida, and enough of a renegade to think he can track Malley down.
With Richard riding shotgun, the unlikely pair scour the state,
undaunted by blinding storms, crazed pigs, flying bullets, and giant
gators. Carl Hiaasen first introduced readers to Skink more than
twenty-five years ago in "Double Whammy, " and he quickly became
Hiaasen's most iconic and beloved character, appearing in six novels to
date. Both teens and adults will be thrilled to catch sight of the
elusive "captain" as he finds hilariously satisfying ways to stop
internet predators, turtle-egg poachers, and lowlife litterbugs in their
tracks. With Skink at the wheel, the search for a missing girl is both
nail-bitingly tense and laugh-out-loud funny.
