SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — Author and humorist Dave Barry will appear virtually for the 2021 Savannah Book Festival on Wednesday, November 11th. Barry’s latest novel, Lessons From Lucy: The Simple Joys of an Old Happy Dog, was published last year. Faced with the obstacles and challenges of life after middle age, Barry turns to his best dog Lucy to learn how to live his best life. From “make new friends” to “don’t stop having fun,” he and Lucy navigate their later years with good humor and grace.
Barry will join moderator Harrison Scott Key — a local author of 2 memoirs, Congratulations, Who Are You Again? and The World’s Largest Man, which won the Thurber Prize for American Humor.
