DeBary Hall Historic Site, 198 Sunrise Blvd., will host a free “Meet the Authors” event from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12.  Five Central Florida authors will discuss, sign and sell their works in the site’s 19th century hunting lodge.

Participating authors will include:

BILL BELLEVILLE: A Maryland native specializing in nature and conservation. He has written seven creative nonfiction books, including River of Lakes: A Journey on Florida’s St. Johns River and Losing it All to Sprawl. He also has contributed to nine national anthologies and authored more than 1,000 articles and essays. Belleville has traveled overseas as a writer for the Discovery Channel and scripted documentaries for NPR and PBS.

ROGER FULTON: A naturalist and outdoor writer who has published several successful management books and a series of trail guides for Florida, New York and Vermont. His definitive publication, Safe in the Woods, offers outdoor safety and survival tips.

MARCIA MEARA: Marcia published a book of poetry and her first novel, Wake-Robin Ridge, at age 69. Since then she has published three more novels – Swamp Ghosts, A Boy Named Rabbit,  and Finding Hunter. Her philosophy is that it’s never too late to follow your dream.

JIM ROBISON: A retired reporter and editor who has written 11 books and more than 1,600 newspaper columns about Central Florida history. He is chairman of the Seminole County Historical Commission, a past present of the Sanford Historical Society, and a board member of the Friends of Wekiva River and the Seminole County Historical Society.

ED WINN: A retired insurance executive who has published many books about Central Florida’s history and folk stories. They include My Florida Soul: Florida History with Humor, Thank You, Lord, for Laughter, and I Never Had Enough Money to Leave Town. Winn has given talks across the state about his research and writings on the ancient tribes of Florida.

Works of other local authors also will be displayed and sold at the event.

    • Thanks, Linda! Wish you could be here, too. You’d enjoy seeing DeBary Hall. Quite a slice of Florida history, with an excellent presentation, in addition to special events like the one Saturday. Hope you’ll help me get the word out this week, if you have a chance. I’d like to do my part to make the event a success. Thanks!

    • Somehow, I never seem to get to the picture part, however, my friend Doug Little will be there, and he’s a great photographer. (He did the photography for the cover of Finding Hunter, in addition to some primo wildlife calendars). Hopefully, he’ll get some shots I can share with you. Wish you could come! In the meantime, if you can help me get the word out this week, it would be great! THANKS!
