Florida House is proud to host a quarterly, free Zoom Book Club, featuring outstanding books about Florida and by Florida’s many talented authors. Anyone can join! Each book club meeting is led by engaging discussion leaders.
Get ready for a Groovy time on July 11 with Author Bob Kealing as he discussed his book “Good Day Sunshine State: How the Beatles Rocked Florida”! Did you know that when the iconic British band toured the United States in 1964, they spent more time in Florida than any other state in the country? The Beatles have an amazing legacy with the Sunshine State, and we are so excited to hear from Bob!
The program will be broadcast live via Zoom starting at 6pm – check out the link below to save your spot!
Bob will be speaking live from The Writer’s Block in Winter Park, Florida. Tickets to listen in-person are $5.00, and the ticket cost can be applied any store purchase – including a copy of Good Day Sunshine State so Bob can sign!
