July Update on Book Progress

The Tampa Bay Times, formerly known as the The St. Petersburg Times, published a new article of mine today.

 The column primarily discusses the strong prospects for solar energy to revive Florida's economy. It also advises Florida's governor to learn from the Lawton Chiles legacy as he crafts an energy agenda for the state. The tag line to the column advertises my forthcoming Lawton Chiles biography, Walkin' Lawton.

The book will be available in electronic and paperback editions on barnesandnoble.com and Amazon.com. I hope to organize book signings and other supporting events in several Florida locations and elsewhere: Washington, DC, Annapolis, MD, and New Haven, CT.

We expect the book to be released around Election Day, to capitalize on the fervor of political season.

The next bulletin will probably discuss a definite release date and options for pre-ordering copies.

Chiles served as a U.S. senator from Florida from 1970 to 1988, and served as Florida's governor from 1990 to 1998. He passed away in 1998. He left a lasting public legacy on diverse issues: infant mortality, prenatal and neonatal care, government transparency, and tobacco control.

Thank you for your interest.
