Program Description:

While many authors have called Florida home, some truly define our state’s literary heritage. Jeff Klinkenberg will discuss some of his favorite “Florida books”, working his way up from William Bartram in 1791 to Jack E. Davis in 2017 with a few favorite authors – Zora Neale Hurston and Patrick Smith – in between. Whether you’re a 5th generation Floridian or a transplant from Michigan, there’s something for everyone.
