Bob Timberlake Book Signing Event
– Saturday only!
6:00 to 8:00pm – Timberlake’s Restaurant
Bob’s newest book, Life’s Lessons, makes its debut just prior to this event. The book, co-written by Bob Timberlake and Mark Erwin, is a compilation of the authors’ favorite lines of wisdom from diverse sources such as Grandma Moses, Billy Graham, George Carlin and a Bermudian taxi driver! Of course, the authors also provide a good dose of their own words of wisdom. Erwin, a close friend of Bob’s, was a U.S. Ambassador in the Clinton administration and was also appointed by Clinton to the Board of Directors of the Overseas Private Investment Corporation, the organization that promotes foreign policy of the United States through the State Department. More than 60 Timberlake paintings accompany the quotations.
