Avow Book Club: SQEEZE ME by Carl Hiaasen (online only)

January 24 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

“Humor is good for the body and soul.”
Please join us in the reading and discussion of January’s book club choice SQEEZE ME by Carl Hiaasen, a Florida native, and writer of humorous fiction.
NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • A hilarious novel of social and political intrigue, set against the glittering backdrop of Florida’s gold coast, from the author of Skinny Dip and Razor Girl.
At the height of Palm Beach’s charity ball season, Kiki Pew Fitzsimmons, a prominent member of geriatric high society, suddenly vanishes during a swank gala. Kiki Pew was a founding member of the Potussies, a group of women dedicated to supporting the President, who spends half the year at the “Winter White House” just down the road.
Meanwhile, Angie Armstrong, wildlife wrangler extraordinaire, is called to the island to deal with a monster-sized Burmese python that has taken residency in a tree. But the President is focused on the disappearance of Kiki Pew. Never one to miss an opportunity to play to his base, he immediately declares her a victim of rampaging immigrant hordes. This, it turns out, is far from the truth, which now lies in the middle of the road, where a bizarre discovery brings the First Lady’s motorcade to a grinding halt.
Irreverent, ingenious, and uproariously entertaining, Squeeze Me perfectly captures the absurdity of our times.
