Plastic Surgery Investigation, A Book About Mar-a-Lago & Trump And A Traveling Theatre Bicycle Troop

Feb 5, 2019

A new USA Today investigation examines the unregulated and dangerous field of plastic surgery in South Florida. The investigation found that plastic surgeon Dr. Ismael Labrador’s clinic in Miami could be responsible for 8 deaths over the past 6 years and dozens of hospitalizations. Michael Sallah, an investigative reporter for USA Today and formerly of the Miami Herald joined Sundial to talk about the findings. 

The new book “Mar-a-Lago: Inside the Gates of Power at Donald Trump's Presidential Palace” documents the fraught relationship Donald Trump has had with the Palm Beach elite.  Author Laurence Leamer spent years interviewing key members of the Palm Beach establishment and reviewing paperwork and documents surrounding the acquisition of Mar-a-Lago. Leamer joined Sundial to discuss the book. He has an event at Books & Books on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at 8 p.m.

A traveling theater bicycle troop from California has a new play that's all about Florida’s Everglades. The Agile Rascal Bicycle Touring Theater Company's play will highlight climate change and environmental issues facing the Everglades. It's funded by the Artist in Residence in Everglades and they will be performing the play at various locations across the state of Florida, kicking off at The Kampong National Tropical Botanical Garden in Coconut Grove. Then they pack their gear and will travel a total of their 1,000 miles on their bikes to others shows in Ft. Lauderdale, Key West, Homestead and Miami. Dara Silverman, the founder of the group joined Sundial to talk about the play and their journey.
