Dave Barry


For years, Dave Barry has been one of the country’s most popular columnists, appearing in papers across the country. 

After spending years pointing out the absurd and intriguing aspects of day-to-day life, he’s now turning his attention to far more important and personal issues in his new book. It’s called “You Can Date Boys When You’re 40: Dave Barry on Parenting and Other Topics He Knows Very Little About.”

Dave, who became a father after the age of 50, reflects on having a teenage daughter and what it’s like to be older than all of her friends’ parents. And how did he survive being among thousands of screaming teenage girls at a Justin Bieber concert? He hilariously describes the event.

Plus, he reflects on his recent milestone birthday — hitting 65 — and why he feels more emboldened than ever to truly speak his mind.
