Growing up in a rural and conservative town in Florida, Andra Douglas struggled to find herself and to make sense of the traditional ideas she was taught about what a woman could do and be. In her powerful and moving book, Black and Blue, Douglas describes her upbringing and the adversity she faced to become who she is today; a highly-regarded award-winning artist, an author, and the owner of the women’s professional football team, the New York Sharks.

Sterling Watson presents The Committee
Tuesday January 07 | 7:00PM - 9:00PM
Join Tombolo Books in welcoming St. Petersburg's own Sterling Watson for the launch of his eighth novel: The Committee.
The Committee is set in a sleepy late 1950s Florida university city. Its characters—professors, students, townspeople rich and poor, and politicians—are both typical of such a place and unusual, even bizarre, for the challenges they face and the changes they undergo when their lives are suddenly disrupted by the nefarious workings of a shadowy group of men, The Committee, who use the powers of government and the police to investigate and reveal the most private acts of innocent men and women.
“The Committee is a triumph of historical fiction—and a warning from our past. Sterling Watson swiftly and elegantly anchors the reader in an era that many would love to forget, and then reminds us of the humanity within the history. Watson is the rare writer who can address the big ideas—politics and power, love and hate, fear and freedom—without ever losing sight of the characters at the story’s heart.”
—Michael Koryta, New York Times best-selling author of How It Happened
Location: Tombolo Books' new bricks-and-mortar, TBA
