If you’ve ever wanted to be a fly on the wall while two history buff authors talk about unsettled Florida territory and the brutal schemes that rich men dream into reality, then you want to be at Oxford Exchange when Pulitzer finalist Ben Montgomery and past CL contributor James Chapin discuss Chapin’s new book “Ride South Until the Sawgrass.”
Montgomery—who got the official Oprah cosign on his own “A Shot in the Moonlight”—counts Chapin’s new work “among the best fiction writing inspired by rugged old Florida.”
Chapin says he’ll and Montgomery will be “chitchatting about the weight of history, the fate of Florida, and whatever comes to mind.”
