Upcoming Events


Carl Hiaasen

Wednesday, Oct 1, 7:00 PM
Decatur Library
Adult (18+)

Number one New York Times bestselling author Carl Hiaasen serves up his unique brand of swamp-justice in Skink: No Surrender. Classic Malley—to avoid being shipped off to boarding school, she takes off with some guy she met online. Poor Richard—he knows his cousin’s in trouble before she does. Wild Skink—he’s a ragged, one-eyed ex-governor of Florida and enough of a renegade to think he can track Malley down. With Richard riding shotgun, the unlikely pair scour the state, undaunted by blinding storms, crazed pigs, flying bullets and giant gators.
