Lessons from Lucy
Dave Barry wrote Lessons From Lucy — a book about all he’s learned from his 11 year old rescue pup – and held his first signing with Friends of Miami Animals and Books & Books. The crowd came to Coral Gables Congregational Church to meet the literary legend famous for making us laugh out loud. Representing FoMA was animal activist Yolanda Berkowitz, who organized the animal adoption portion of the night, caravanning in an array of her furry canine friends in need of new families.
