New Book Review

The Tampa Bay Times has just published their book review of Walkin' Lawton. I'm delighted for the Chiles legacy to receive such significant coverage. And I'm pleased that the reviewer found it "compelling."

I did years of research into the St. Petersburg Times (the former name for The Tampa Bay Times) archive to unlock the reams of information necessary to complete my biography. I think it's a fine newspaper that holds the state's governors accountable.

The Rest of the Book Tour

I'm still planning out the rest of the book tour. Ideally, it will continue through the fall. There are several book festivals coming up in Florida.

And I'd like to do another book event in my hometown of Annapolis.

I'm excited for the Florida Historical Society annual conference in May--it will be held aboard a cruise ship sailing for the Bahamas.
