The Winter Garden Heritage Foundation will host a book-signing event at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 18, at the foundation’s Heller Hall, 21 E. Plant St.

With more than 130 photographs ― many of them seen for the first time ― “Florida: A History in Pictures” offers a stunning portrait of this one-of-a-kind state.

From the stone forts at St. Augustine, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the United States, to the Everglades or “The Big Swamp,” as it was called at the beginning of the 20th century, to Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, the Fort Myers Beach arches and Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse — it is all included. Historic Florida offers a window into the past.

Authors Mike McGinness and Jeff Davies have put together the definitive photographic account of the Sunshine State.

After an informative presentation, books will be available for sale and signing. For information, call (407) 656-3244.
