Dave Barry
Google New York, Monday, March 2 at 12:30pm
Dave Barry (Boogers Are My Beat, Dave Barry Does Japan, Dave Barry Hits Below the Beltway, Dave Barry In Cyberspace, Dave Barry Is From Mars and Venus, Dave Barry Is Not Making This Up, Dave Barry Is Not Taking This Sitting Down, Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys, Dave Barry's Greatest Hits, Dave Barry Slept Here, Dave Barry's Money Secrets, Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need, Dave Barry Talks Back, Dave Barry Turns Fifty, Dave Barry Turns Forty)

The New York Times has pronounced Dave Barry "the funniest man in America." But of course that could have been on a slow news day when there wasn't much else fit to print.True, his bestselling collections of columns are legendary, but it is his wholly original books, like this one, that reveal him as an American icon. Dave Barry Slept Here was his version of American history. Dave Barry Does Japan was a contribution to international peace and understanding from which Japan has not yet fully recovered. Dave Barry's Complete Guide to Guys is among the best-read volumes in rehab centers and prisons. And now, with his take on American politics and, especially, Washington, D.C., he takes his place with de Tocqueville and Larry King as a truly infamous explicator of and commentator on the process by which we find, fund, and... (fill in your own four-letter word here) our pols and public servants.Raised in a suburb of New York, educated in a suburb of Philadelphia, he lives now in a suburb of Miami. (Won't they let him into the cities? Read him on, for example, Miami, which played such a pivotal role in the last presidential election, and you'll understand why.)He is not, as he often puts it so poetically, making this up.

"Gil Hodges: A Hall of Fame Life" with author Mort Zachter
Bergino Baseball Clubhouse, Thursday, March 5 at 7pm
“No man lives his image.” -Gil Hodges

“As a Marine, one of Brooklyn’s beloved Boys of Summer, and the manager of the Miracle Mets, Gil Hodges lived a great American life, though one cut too short. In these pages you understand how Hodges defined what it meant to be a role model in a golden age.” -Tom Verducci, senior writer for “Sports Illustrated”

“Zachter brings the same grace and precision to the page that Hodges brought to first base at Ebbets Field and with methodical research, insight, and pure affection gives life to the man behind the astounding stats.”
 -Marty Markowitz, former Brooklyn Borough president

“Whether focusing on Hodges the Hoosier, the marine on Okinawa, the home run-hitting slugger, or the Brooklynite on Bedford Avenue, Mort Zachter has given us Gil, right down to the nub of his Marlboro.”
 -Bob McGee, author of “The Greatest Ballpark Ever”

Join Mort Zachter on March 5th in the Clubhouse for our conversation and you’ll understand the praise.

RSVP required to attend.

Autographed and personalized copies of “Gil Hodges A Hall of Fame Life” will be available for purchase

Mort Zachter is a former tax attorney and adjunct tax professor at New York University. His first book, “Dough: A Memoir,” won the Association of Writers and Writing Programs Book Prize for nonfiction. (Clubhouse)
