Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond
Join author F. Diane Pickett at the Walton-DeFuniak Springs Library located at 3 Circle Drive, DeFuniak Springs, Florida, on Saturday, January 25, 2014, at 10:45am for a sneak preview of her first novel, Never Isn’t Long Enough, which takes a new look at the old South and its fascinating people.
This humorous Southern family saga follows a field of flawed and flamboyant characters as they race through pages of sparkling wit, drama, conflict, and tragedy. It’s a story of how a single mistake can turn the promise of youth into a lifelong quest for retribution and embodies an irreverent look at religion and the social culture of the South—which often masquerades as “Southern gentility.”
A true Southerner who knows her way around the Derby, Ms. Pickett is also the founder of the revived Florida Chautauqua Assembly, which takes place January 23-26, 2014, in the small town of DeFuniak Springs, Florida, and is widely acclaimed as one of the premier cultural and educational events of Northwest Florida. It has attracted notable speakers over the years, including former first ladies and TV personalities. The “sneak preview” and book signing of Never Isn’t Long Enough occurs during the Assembly.
All proceeds from the sale of the book will go to the nonprofit organization.
