Boca Raton Public Library – Downtown Presents an Author Talk and Book Signing with Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author and Humorist, Dave Barry
Sunday, October 20, 2019, 3:00–5:00pm
Boca Raton, FL – In partnership with the Flamingo Comedy Festival, the Boca Raton Public Library is pleased to present an author talk and book signing by Pulitzer Prize-winning author and humorist, Dave Barry. This bestselling author will discuss his most recent books, Lessons from Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old, Happy Dog and A Field Guide to the Jewish People. In this highly entertaining presentation, you’ll learn why The New York Times has called Barry “the funniest man in America”!
From 1983 to 2004, Dave Barry wrote a weekly humor column for The Miami Herald, which in 1988 won a Pulitzer Prize for Commentary. He is the author of more than thirty books, including such bestsellers as the nonfiction Live Right and Find Happiness (Although Beer Is Much Faster), You Can Date Boys When You’re Forty, and I’ll Mature When I’m Dead; the novels Big Trouble, Tricky Business, and Insane City; the very successful YA Peter Pan novels (with Ridley Pearson); and his Christmas story The Shepherd, the Angel, and Walter the Christmas Miracle Dog. Two of his books—Big Trouble and Dave Barry’s Guide to Guys—have been turned into movies. For a while, his life was even a television series, Dave’s World, but then it was canceled. The series. Not the life. Dave is also a guitarist with the wildly untalented, all-author band, the Rock Bottom Remainders.
“When you hear the name ‘Dave Barry,’ you know you are about to hear something funny and uniquely Florida,” notes Oyuki Poletz, Program Services Librarian, “which is why we are thrilled to partner with the Flamingo Comedy Festival to bring some much needed laughter to the community.”
Dave Barry’s books will be available for purchase and signing after the talk. Register for this free program at www.flamingocomedyfestival.com.
