TIM DORSEY @ PAGE & PALETTE

#TimDorseyBookTour

From Florida’s king of mayhem—”compulsively irreverent and shockingly funny” (Boston Globe) New York Times bestselling author Tim Dorsey—comes a diabolically madcap adventure featuring the indomitable Serge A. Storms.

No one worships the Sunshine State as much as Serge A. Storms. Perpetually hunting Floridian arcana and lore, he and his permanently baked sidekick, Coleman, are on the road again. This time they’re on a frenzied literary pilgrimage that leads them back to Riviera Beach, the cozy seaside town where the boys spent their formative years.

Growing up, Serge was enthralled by the Legend of Riviera Beach, aka Darby, a welder at the port who surfed the local waves long before the hot spots were hot. A god on the water, the big-hearted surfer was a friend to everyone—the younger surfers, cops, politicians, wealthy businessmen and ordinary Joes—a generosity of spirit that earned him the admiration of all. Meanwhile, there was a much murkier legend that made the rounds of the schoolyards from Serge’s youth—that of the crazy hermit living in a makeshift jungle compound farther up the mysterious Loxahatchee River than anyone dared to venture.

Then Serge moved away. But never forgot.

Now he’s back, with those legends looming larger than ever in the rearview mirror of his memory. As his literary odyssey moves north from Key West, closer and closer to his old stomping grounds, Serge digs into the past as only Serge can. Along the way, he unintentionally disturbs some long-forgotten ground, attracting the attention of a cast of villains that only Florida can produce.

As the body count grows, so does the list of questions:

Why are the guys in the hard hats worried about the monkeys? When do you hack a motel air-conditioner? How does Coleman get high with cat toys? Who is expecting the dildo? And will book tours ever be the same after Serge decides to check one out?

Told in alternating flashbacks between Serge and Coleman’s childhoods and the present day, The Pope of Palm Beach is a witty and deliciously violent delight from the twisted imagination of Tim Dorsey.

Bayshore’s 10th Annual Auction and Dinner, known as the “Bayshore Benefit,” is just around the corner. The auction will be held at Oak Hollow Farm on March 9th at 5:15 p.m. This will be an exciting evening of fellowship and fundraising for BCS! We are proud of the tradition this event has created over the past 10 years and the blessing it has become to our school families.

The auction will feature a delicious dinner prepared by Oak Hollow Farm. The event will begin with a Silent Auction offering a fabulous variety of items donated by businesses in the community and friends of BCS. Following the Silent Auction, we will have dinner and a Live Auction. As in the past, the Live Auction will begin with the Dessert Frenzy where decadent homemade desserts will be auctioned. The Live Auction will also consist of several big ticket items.

The auction committee wants to make this the most successful auction to date! There are several committees and many opportunities to serve. If you would like to help volunteer or have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the members of the auction committee.

Tickets are $75 each or $575 for table of 8. If you are interested in purchasing tickets for the event or sponsoring the event, please contact Ellen Estes at eestes@bayshorechristian.org.
