Program Description:

This program isn’t a “book lecture” or a “talk”; it is visual storytelling produced and presented by famed author Patrick Smith’s son, Rick (Patrick, Jr.), a professional media producer. Rick has created over 50 video clips, special visual and sound effects, music and more to bring his presentation to life. It has been shown over 240 times in venues all over Florida, to rave reviews. Rick will discuss his late father’s body of work and why he decided to write about society’s underdogs. Using video records of his father, you’ll learn how Patrick Smith researched A Land Remembered for over two years before he could write it, and he’ll share his thoughts about the “real” Florida.
