ATTENTION, HIAASEN FANS:

My buddy Carl Hiaasen has a great new book out. It's called Squeeze Me, and it features pythons, a topic he knows a lot about. Carl and I will be talking about it in a virtual event for Book Passages tonight at 7p eastern. I'll be interviewing Carl about, among other things, his weird obsession with interest in snakes.
