Book Signing and Reading with Author Amy Bennett Williams at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates

Fort Myers, Florida (October 18, 2011)- Join Amy Bennett Williams, journalist and editor of Tropicalia magazine and author of Along the Caloosahatchee River at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates, October 22, at 1 p.m. Williams will be signing books and reading  her favorite excerpts from the book.

Arcadia Publishing describes Williams’ book as “the story of the ancient mastodons that once roamed its shores, the 19th century entrepreneurs who bent it to their wills, and the celebrities [including Thomas Edison and Henry Ford] who have relaxed on its waters.  Richly illustrated with historical images and observations, Along the Caloosahatchee River chronicles the life of the singular waterway that joins the heart of Southwest Florida to the Gulf of Mexico and beyond.”

Williams’ book is available for purchase in the Estates Museum Store or online at the Edison Ford website http://www.edisonfordwinterestates.org/store/Books/.

The Edison Ford is open daily from 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. The Estates is the winner of the 2009 National Stewardship Award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is an official project of “Save America’s Treasures” at the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a Florida Historic Landmark and a National Register Historic Site.
