Tim Dorsey appearance at Books-A-Million Saturday

Tim Dorsey fans will have the opportunity to meet the author at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Books-A-Million store in Bradenton. There, Dorsey will be promoting his newest book, "Gator A-go-go."

The story features Serge and his sidekick Coleman, who hit the road on a Spring Break adventure complete with sports cars, rock 'n' roll, pawned class rings and church breakfasts. Along the way, though, they attract not just top college students but a mysterious gang that leaves a trail of young bodies in their wake. Many questions arise: Are the kids safer under Serge's protection? When did Coleman get all those trophies? And can kids successfully climb fences while carrying pizzas?

Dorsey, a Tampa-based writer, has penned about 10 other Florida-based novels that include "Florida Roadkill," "Orange Crush" and "Atomic Lobster." He was a reporter and editor for the Tampa Tribune from 1987-1999.

The book store is in Cortez Rd. Plaza, 4255 14th St. W. For more information, call 748-3911.
