Sundial Book Club For October: "Squeeze Me"
Welcome to the Sundial Book Club! We created this online community to read, share and discuss books and characters that are unique to South Florida.
Here's how our club works:
On the first Tuesday of each month, we announce the book we're reading. We then continue the discussion throughout the month on our Facebook group as we read the book.
The third week of the month, we'll interview the author (or experts familiar with the book). And shortly after, we'll have a conversation where we talk with panelists (this could be you!) about what we read and what else we're reading.
WLRN and WLRN Sundial are not endorsing or financially supporting any of these books, publishers or authors. This group is meant to foster insightful conversations and provide a place to explore topics related to the literature we're reading.
Have a suggestion for a book? You can email us.

This Month’s Sundial Book Club Title: "Squeeze Me"
Here's a summary:
"At the height of Palm Beach’s charity ball season, Kiki Pew Fitzsimmons, a prominent member of geriatric high society, suddenly vanishes during a swank gala. Kiki Pew was a founding member of the Potussies, a group of women dedicated to supporting the president, who spends half the year at the “Winter White House” just down the road.
Meanwhile, Angie Armstrong, wildlife wrangler extraordinaire, is called to the island to deal with a monster-sized Burmese python that has taken residency in a tree. But the president is focused on the disappearance of Kiki Pew. Never one to miss an opportunity to play to his base, he immediately declares her a victim of rampaging immigrant hordes. This, it turns out, is far from the truth, which now lies in the middle of the road, where a bizarre discovery brings the First Lady’s motorcade to a grinding halt. Irreverent, ingenious, and uproariously entertaining, 'Squeeze Me' perfectly captures the absurdity of our times."
The book is available in local libraries and online.
