Book Signing, 12:00-1:00 pm – I’ll be signing books again at this annual event. The old County Dock, which was located adjacent to the museum grounds, is featured in my book Trouble on the St. Johns River. (My book was published in 2008 and the dock was destroyed by Hurricane Matthew in 2016 but is scheduled to be rebuilt.)

Author Visit – Each year for the past five years, I have been invited to speak to the 4th graders at this South Florida school about my book Voices in St. Augustine. The students have always read my book before my presentation, making it especially meaningful for both of us.
