 Patrick Smith’s Florida, A Land Remembered 

     Few if any books have captured the spirit and colorful history of Florida as has Patrick Smith’s beloved novel, A Land Remembered and subsequent novels which follow the settlers and Native Americans of the emerging State of Florida.

     It has been said that people should be issued a copy of A Land Remembered when they cross the Florida state line.

     Here is your opportunity to get to know the author and his work as Smith’s son, Rick, takes the stage to delight audiences with a multimedia show about his father and the extraordinary experiences he had which were necessary for him to write with such authority of Florida pioneers, the Seminoles, migrant workers, “river rats” of Mississippi, the social injustices of the South and the challenges of the present.

     This program is a sensory delight, incorporating video clips, photos, paintings, music and sound effects to transport you to another place and time.

     Rick Smith is a professional media producer and his father’s biggest fan. His passion for his subject is clearly evident in this lovingly produced program. Come and enjoy an unforgettable journey into a Florida that once was, is no more, and never will again be.

     Conversation and book signing to follow in Museum store.

     Monthly meetings and lectures are open to current Edison Ford volunteers as well as prospective volunteers and public.

      For additional information contact the Volunteer Department at 239-334-7419.
