Books and Books Reading- WOW!

A hurricane evacuated nearby South Beach but it didn’t deter a super group of people from coming to hear me read from The Lizard King Thursday night.  And I say super not just because they showed up.  Among the audience were Robin Bepler, Jennifer EnglishJudge Chris McAliley, SAC Eddie McKissick, and AUSA Tom Watts-Fitzgerald.  Having so many of the book’s true heroes in one place was a great and humbling honor.  Others in the audience were at different stages in their lives–off to college, starting out as a lawyer, retired, struggling with cancer.  I enjoyed talking with people not only about reptiles and smuggling but also about life choices and discussing how to lead a life of value, the most important question of all.  There were some knowledgeable reptile people in the audience, and even Alan Riggerman bought a book.  The staff at Books and Books were wonderful.  If there is a church of the book it is surely Books and Books of Coral Gables, Florida.
