BOOK DISCUSSION: Tourist Season by Carl Hiaasen
Read “Tourist Season” by Carl Hiaasen and join the book discussion of how this book represents trueFLORIDA About “Tourist Season:” The first sign of trouble is a Shriner’s fez washed up on a Miami beach. The next is a suitcase containing the almost-legless body of the local chamber of commerce president found floating in a canal…The locals are desperate to keep the murders under wraps and the tourist money flowing. But it will take a reporter-turned-private eye to make sense of a caper that mixes football players, politicians, and one very hungry crocodile in this classic mystery that GQ called “one of the top ten destination reads of all time.” This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnership with Friends of the Eau Gallie Public Library.
