Tamiami Tale Tellers and Gulf Coast Writers Association Vice President Mary Charles rehearsed yesterday (Friday) in advance of tonight’s sold-out book launch of Storm Stories-Hurricane Ian at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, Fla.
The anthology collects the true, personal experiences of residents in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Sarasota, Manatee, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, Fla., who lived through Hurricane Ian. The Tale Tellers will read selections from each of the stories. Maritime author and Pine Island resident Robert Macomber will read his preface to the book, and contemporary artist Leoma Lovegrove, who contributed artwork for the book’s cover, will also speak.
