Florida Conversations at the Tampa Bay History Center Continues with Deborah Sharp's "Mama Rides Shotgun"
The 2009-2010 season of Florida Conversations continues with Deborah Sharp, on Sunday, May 23rd, at 3:00 p.m. in TECO Hall. Sharp will discuss her latest book, Mama Rides Shotgun.
A reporter for USA Today for nearly two decades, Sharp traded the sad stories of the news business for her funny ''Mace Bauer Mystery'' series, set in a “sweet-tea-and-barbecue slice” of her native Florida. The series debuted with Mama Does Time (Midnight Ink, 2008). Deborah's Florida mysteries are funny, with a soft Southern edge: Think Carl Hiaasen on estrogen. Sharp has been featured on NPR and NBC’s Today Show.
Florida Conversations is underwritten by the Tampa Bay History Center Endowment Fund at USF. The series is co-sponsored by the USF Libraries Florida Studies Center and the Tampa Bay History Center.
Florida Conversations is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Tampa Bay History Center at 228-0097 or visit us online.
