Don't Miss Florida Author James Grippando Nov. 8
Grippando is a New York Times best-selling author, who spent 12 years as a trial attorney. He has become the go-to novelist for readers seeking intellectually provocative, relentlessly suspenseful, and tremendously entertaining thrillers that capitalize on his unique ability to anticipate tomorrow’s headlines and make nail-biting “what if” scenarios frighteningly real. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase autographed copies of some of Grippando’s novels, such as “Black Horizon,” “Blood Money,” “Afraid of the Dark” and “Money to Burn.”
Not only will participants listen to the intense imaginations and legal expertise of Grippando, while they enjoy dinner and dessert, but proceeds from the event will benefit the St. Lucie County Library System. The Friends of the Library has already pledged funding to assist with the operations of the new St. Lucie County Branch Library on Rosser Boulevard in Port St. Lucie, which is slated to open in the near future.
Tickets for the 34rd Annual Friends of the St. Lucie County Library Dinner and Meeting cost $55 and include dinner, the lecture and a 2015 Friends membership. This popular event has sold out the past three years. Seating is limited, so reserve your seats now by calling 772-462-2196 or LibraryFriends@stlucieco.org.
