Madison authors, topics, book events, and publishers
Stu Levitan welcomes the award-winning comic novelist and just-retired columnist for the Miami Herald Carl Hiaasen, coming to the Wisconsin Book Festival for a virtual appearance at the Madison Public Library Foundation’s Lunch for Libraries next Tuesday May 25. Carl will be discussing his uproarious new bestseller Squeeze Me, now out in paperback with a brand-new epilogue, which will be sent to all who attend that annual fundraising event.
Squeeze Me is a sharp, even savage satire set in Palm Beach FL involving a giant Burmese python, a missing society matron, a gutsy wildlife wrangler, a mystery man with one eye and a great library, hapless crooks, a wrongly accused immigrant, a crude and stupid president of the united states in residence at Casa Bellicosa, and much more. It is classic Carl Hiaasen, which means it is a fiercely funny social commentary about life, death and the environment in the Sunshine State.
It’s a pleasure to welcome to Madison BookBeat, Carl Hiaasen.
