Lunch for Libraries - Carl Hiaasen

Tuesday, May 25, 11:30am to 1:00pm

Presented by BMO Harris Bank, this year's Lunch for Libraries event will feature novelist and longtime Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen. Carl will appear live on Crowdcast to discuss his newest book, Squeeze Me, with Wisconsin thriller writer, Nick Petrie. Join us for this annual fundraiser on May 25th at 12:00 PM. 

Squeeze Me is a novel of social and political intrigues, set against the glittering backdrop of Florida’s gold coast. It's the height of the Palm Beach charity ball season: for every disease or cause, there's a reason for the local luminaries to eat (minimally), drink (maximally), and be seen. But when a prominent high-society dowager suddenly vanishes during a swank gala, and is later found dead in a concrete grave, panic and chaos erupt.
