HOLT, Fla., April 10, 2017—The Baker Block Museum is sponsoring or co-sponsoring two book signing events in April with local history ties.
The first event is an audiovisual presentation about Florida’s broadcasting history presented by Donn R. Colee Jr., retired general manager of WPEC in West Palm Beach, Fla.
Included in his presentation will be the history of Crestview radio stations.
Following the presentation, Colee will be available to sign his book, Towers in the Sand; the History of Florida Broadcasting.
The 650-page book covers the history of Florida broadcasting from the panhandle to the Florida Keys.
This event will be held at Crestview’s Robert L. F. Sikes Public Library April 13 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. It is sponsored by the Crestview Historic Preservation Board and the Baker Block Museum.
The second event is a book signing and dedication at the Baker Block Museum April 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The book, The Escambia Farms Community: A Pictorial History of the Project and the Community, by Judy Cadenhead, tells the history of the farming community primarily in pictures.
Approved in 1936, the Escambia Farms Cooperative was established and included a co-op store, school, housing and other facilities to support more than 80 families over 95 acres.
Cadenhead will be on hand at the museum to sign her book.
