Lake City, Florida - A Sesquicentennial Tribute
Softcover, 300 pages
I have co-authored a book, "Lake City, Florida - A Sesquicentennial Tribute" to help us celebrate our town's 150th birthday.
My co-author is Dr. Kevin M. McCarthy, professor emeritus at UF, and one of the most prolific Florida authors.
Dr. McCarthy has a B.A. in American Literature from LaSalle College (1963), an M.A. in English and a Ph.D. in Linguistics, both from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (1970).
He taught in the Peace Corps in Turkey for two years, in Lebanon for one year, and in Saudi Arabia for two years, both as a Fulbright Professor, and as a professor of English and Linguistics at the University of Florida for 35 years.
UF named him its Distinguished Alumni Professor before he retired in 2005. He has also taught in Viet Nam twice and in Spain twice, and he has had 44 books published.
He appears frequently on Fridays on "Connor Calling" on the Gainesville/UF public radio station to answer questions on language usage.
Our book covers our history from the 16th Century to the present time.
