Author Randy Wayne White “Crocs”

March 20 @ 2:00 PM

Author Randy Wayne White talks about his new middle grade novel, “Crocs”!

New York Times bestselling author (and Southwest Florida favorite) Randy Wayne White will appear at Copperfish Books on Sunday, March 20 at 2 pm! Randy will speak and sign copies of his forthcoming children’s novel Crocs , which is #3 in his Sharks Inc. series (for ages 8 to 12). Randy would love to meet his young fans, and kids are encouraged to attend! (Ticket information below.)

The book will be published in hardcover on March 1 and available for pick up before the event.

If you will not be able to attend and would like an autographed copy, please let us know when you place your order (and mention how you would like Randy to inscribe it).

At the start of the event, Randy will give a brief talk. We plan to have him speak from our front porch and everyone will listen from our parking lot. Please bring a chair if you need one. Afterwards, he will sign books inside the store.

We continue to encourage the wearing of masks while inside our store.

Your ticket includes a copy of Crocs and grants you and your family priority in the signing line. Anyone who hasn’t purchased a ticket will wait until ticket holders have gone through.

Purchase your ticket through Eventbrite here, or call/come in to the store.

If you would like to purchase #1 Fins and #2 Stingers in either hardcover or paperback, please order them from us before March 7. We will have a limited number of the earlier books on hand.

After a summer of tagging sharks off the west coast of Florida, Sabina, Maribel, and Luke have a new assignment: searching for “survivor trees” that are resistant to the disease that is destroying the state’s citrus trees; the search takes them to the remote mangrove islands of Sanibel Island, where they discover Spanish oranges, a grave, an immense saltwater crocodile, a reclusive woman who believes that the ghost of a dead king, beheaded by Spanish explorers, is haunting her, and her neighbor who is involved in the illegal reptile trade–and in their effort to protect the woman and her animals they are soon plunged into a struggle for survival.

Randy Wayne White is the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Doc Ford series. In 2011, White was named a Florida Literary Legend by the Florida Heritage Society. A fishing and nature enthusiast, he has also written extensively for National Geographic Adventure, Men’s Journal, Playboy and Men’s Health. He lives on Sanibel Island, Florida, where he was a light-tackle fishing guide for many years, and spends much of his free time windsurfing, playing baseball, and hanging out at Doc Ford’s Rum Bar & Grille. Sharks Incorporated is his middle grade series, including Fins and Stingers.
