I'd never been to Lake Park before last night. It's tucked in next to Riviera Beach which I remember was once the home and hangout for Frederick Exley who wrote A Fan's Notes, one of the great all time memoirs of a drunk and loser.
But Lake Park is a pretty little town in Palm Beach County and a nice crowd ventured out during a massive thunderstorm with lightning and sheets of rain to hear my talk, and eat cookies and help support the Lake Park Library. A hardy bunch.
The talk was held in a gorgeous old building used as the Town Hall. The clip below shows a little of that gracious architecture.
The fine folks from Classic Bookshop sold books. Classic is the first rate independent store in downtown Palm Beach. A fine place. Visit it next time you're shopping for furs on Worth Avenue.
