A Land Remembered Shows Coming in November 2017

The A Land Remembered Multimedia Show is going to be in Florida this month! If you haven’t been to one of my shows, now is your chance. Audiences all over Florida have raved about my show about my father, Patrick D. Smith, and his beloved books, like A Land Remembered. I call the show Patrick Smith’s Florida IS A Land Remembered. It isn’t a stuffy “lecture” or a “talk.” I call it visual storytelling and it’s a fun, fast-paced and entertaining “show!”

Interested in Florida history? Check out these other books.

While A Land Remembered is a key theme of my show, in order to understand what led him to write this book l also talk about the other books that were important steps in his writing career. In my opinion, every one of them is a gem and this is the best possible way to meet the author and understand his work more deeply as I take the stage with this multimedia show about him and the extraordinary experiences that enabled him to write such unforgettable stories about the “river rats” of Mississippi (The River is Home), the Seminoles of South Florida (Forever Island and Allapattah), the plight of migrant workers (Angel City) and ultimately, the pioneers so accurately portrayed in A Land Remembered.

I love taking this show on the road and I hope to meet you along the way in November 2017. Below the schedule of where the A Land Remembered tour will be.
