Patrick Smith’s Florida is A Land Remembered @ Safety Harbor Library

November 13, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A Land Remembered

Rick Smith will present a multimedia show about his father’s famous books at the Safety Harbor Public Library on Thursday, November 13, 6:30 pm. Few, if any books, have captured the spirit and colorful history of Florida as Patrick Smith’s beloved novel, A Land Remembered. Rick takes the stage to delight audiences with a unique program about his father and the extraordinary life experiences that enabled him to write with such authority of Florida pioneers, the Seminoles, migrant workers, “river rats” of Mississippi, the social injustices of the South, the Merchant Marine in World War II and the challenges of the present.

“I describe this as a show, not a talk or a lecture,” Rick says. “The presentation consists of over 50 videos, photos, artwork, music and sound effects. I narrate it live throughout. I make it visually stimulating and throw in a joke or two for good measure. My first goal was to make it entertaining. One man in the audience said he had spent his life in media production and that this was the finest example of visual storytelling he had ever seen. That meant a lot to me.”

The library is located 101 2nd Street N., Safety Harbor, FL 34695. For more information, contact 727-724-1525 x 4112.   The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Safety Harbor Public Library.
