Join us for our upcoming author event, An Evening with Lee Irby, on Monday, April 9, 2018, on the second floor of Mirror Lake Library at 280 5th Street North, St. Petersburg. This event is co-sponsored by our community partner Keep St. Pete Lit and is the kick-off event for the 4th annual SunLit Festival.

Opening remarks begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by the author’s talk.  A reception and book signing is from 6:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Seating is available starting at 5:00 p.m.

Lee Irby is the author of several major novels, including 7,000 CLAMS, THE UP AND UP, and UNRELIABLE, all published by Doubleday.  In 2012, he released THE VAN, a novel following the life of a VW Bus.  Irby’s work centers on the quirks of Florida’s history, the interplay of natural beauty and rampant corruption and violence that marked the Sunshine State in the 1920s.  He teaches at Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida.
