For December, the UNF Alumni Book Club will be reading "Al Capp: A Life to the Contrary" by Denis Kitchen and Michael Schumacher. Al Capp (1909-79), whose comic strip “Li’l Abner” ran for 43 years and reached 90 million readers at its peak, was a celebrity: a radio personality, magazine essayist, talk-show regular and college speaker. Among his strip’s contributions to the cultural landscape were the expression “double whammy” and the invention of Sadie Hawkins Day, a mock holiday (and national craze in its time) that inspired Sadie Hawkins dances. Capp's story is one of incredible highs and lows as told here through Michael Schumacher and Denis Kitchen's probing biography. This meeting of the book club will be Wednesday, Dec. 11. The Alumni Book Club meets the second Wednesday of every month at 10 a.m. in the Office of Alumni Services located at Alumni Hall. Beverages and snacks will be provided. To join us or for more information, please contact the Office of Alumni Services at (904) 620-4723.
