Lizard People: A Conversation with Ryan Rivas @ Tombolo Books

Tombolo Books welcomes back Florida author Ryan Rivas to the bookstore to celebrate his "darkly comic and deeply strange novella" Lizard People.

Rivas and Shane Hinton, author of Pinkies and editor of We Can't Help It If We're From Florida, will be in conversation!

All his life, the unnamed narrator of Lizard People has believed he’s a lizard person. After an incident at work, he’s sent to a coastal resort for intensive therapy to confront the truth of his peculiar identity. But amid days of lounging by the pool with his fellow recoverings, intensive sessions with a therapist, and the appearance of a love interest with ill intentions, his self-discovery remains elusive.

Let us we will see you there! Please RSVP via the link provided
