Name: Rhoda the Alligator Meet & Greet with Governor Bob Graham
Date: December 13, 2020
Time: 12:00 PM - 5:00 PM EST
Event Description:
Join former Florida Governor Bob Graham as we celebrate his debut children's book, Rhoda the Alligator. The book features a beautiful message and illustrations from local Gainesville artist Jay Winter Collins.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase midweek prior to the event, with pre-signed copies available beginning Sunday. From 2 - 4 PM on Sunday, Governor Graham will join us for a meet-and-greet!

The meet-and-greet will take place outside with books available for purchase inside the store. We ask that all attendees wear a mask inside the store as well as in the outdoor event area. Safe social distancing will be practiced. For those who can't make the event in person, the book will continue to be available in store and online.

The book tells the story of Rhoda, a uniquely colored alligator who is trying to find her place in the wild world of the Florida Everglades National Park. Filled with beautiful illustrations, Rhoda the Alligator teaches pre-school and kindergarten children about the beauty of our differences and the hurt that bullying can inflict.

Governor Graham is a proud graduate of the University of Florida, so of course his Rhoda the Alligator is orange and blue. His book will be a treasure for years to come for all UF Gator fans and everyone who has a tender heart.
