Author/humorist Dave Barry will premiere his laugh-out-loud new kid's book, The Worst Class Trip Ever, Wednesday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Takoma Park Community Center auditorium. Barry, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his syndicated humor column, also has written a number of books for adults and kids, including the popular Peter and the Starcatcher series, co-authored with Ridley Pearson. In his newest book, Barry tells the story of several eighth graders who travel from Florida to Washington, D.C. on a school trip and find themselves both in trouble with their teachers and in danger from some mysterious men who just may be targeting the President. Publishers Weekly called the book "hilarious," adding: "Pulitzer-winner Barry has the comic sensibility of a middle school class clown. Expect to have lots of trouble keeping this one on the shelf." Politics & Prose will be selling copies of Barry's books at our event, but the program is free and no purchase is required to attend.
