Dave Barry

After Pulitzer Prize-winner Dave Barry turned 70, did he look to his friends for support? Did he find solace in the family around him?

Not a chance.

In his new book, Lessons from Lucy, the laugh-out-loud columnist that the New York Times once called “the funniest man in America,” looked to his dog Lucy for companionship and a model for how to grow old with grace.

From his beloved dog, Dave learns to live in the present, let go of daily grievances, and feel good in his own skin. Told with Dave’s signature humor and profound ability to find deep meaning in the everyday, Lessons from Lucy illuminates the great joys of passing 40 and still feeling great.

Share an evening with the writer who never fails to leave us looking at the world differently while making us laugh.
