Carl Hiaasen on “Skink–No Surrender”

Carl Hiaasen talks about how he resurrected a character from an earlier novel and shifted him from an adult book to one for teens in Skink—No Surrender.

Hiassen explains that this new title is calibrated for an older audience due to the subject matter, and how his teen son played a role in the creation of this book.

At 4:25, it’s a little longer than most videos I share. But the production quality makes the length a non-issue.
