Patrick Smith wrote a classic when he penned “A Land Remembered” about early Florida. Now, you can hear how the book came about and relive some of the poignant episodes in a multi-media presentation by his son Rick Smith on Friday, November 17, at 5:30 p.m. in Everglades City.
This is a unique experience, enjoyed by many, as Rick visits around the state and talks about the pioneers, the Seminoles, and other early characters. He says, “I describe this as a show, not a talk or a lecture” but it will be educational and interesting. And of course, there will be copies of his father’s book for sale.
The event is hosted by the Everglades Society for Historic Preservation as their annual “Welcome-Back Historical Talk”. It takes place in the temporary City Hall, 205 Buckner Avenue North, Everglades City, 34139, behind the old fire station. Reservations are required because of the limited space. RSVP to ESHP@hotmail.com or phone Marya at (239) 695-2905. For info, see Rick’s website http:// alandremembered.com/everglades/
