An Afternoon at the Zoo with Carl Hiaasen

Sun. September 28th @ 3:00

Blue Manatee, along with The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens, will be hosting New York Times best-selling author Carl Hiaasen, as he discusses and signs his new book for (pre)teens: Skink--No Surrender. This nail-biter about a missing girl, gators, and Skink's special brand of swamp justice is a laugh-out-loud read for teens and adults alike! And while you're at our special event, don't be surprised if you have a few animal encounters of your own!

-Best for ages 8 and up.

-Location: The Peacock Pavilion at The Cincinnati Zoo.

-Line Numbers for the signing will be given with purchase of Skink--No Surrender.

-Zoo Members do not need a special event ticket, but do need a Line Number for the signing. For Non-Zoo Members, The Zoo is offering discounted general admission tickets for $9 for this event.
