The Southwest Book Club will be meeting on Tuesday, April 18 at 7:00 pm at the library. Works of fiction by Carl Hiaasen will be discussed. Book club attendees may pick to read any fiction title by Hiassen, including his two juvenile titles " Hoot" and "Flush."

As an award-winning investigative reporter for the Miami Herald, Carl Hiaasen's fictional works reflect his exposure to--and outrage over--Florida's social ills. A native of South Florida, Hiaasen has turned his righteous indignation into humorous satire in which heroes and villains alike exhibit farcical quirks and an attachment to creative forms of violence. His first juvenile fiction book, "Hoot" has won awards. For more information about Hiaasen and his writing, go to the online database Literature Resource Center found in the Library's Virtual Library.

Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend book club meetings. For more information about the Southwest Book Club call 407-835-7323 or email mayer.sandy@ocls.info
