Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAINT PETERSBURG, Fla. - Feb 07, 2017 - Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Hidden History of St. Petersburg
Local author Will Michaels will be available to sign copies of book
Florida is one of the most visited places in the world, and one of its most visited cities is St. Petersburg. But there’s a lot more to the “Sunshine City” than pristine beaches. During his travels to sunny St. Pete, James Brown discovered local jazz artist LeRoy Flemmings Jr. Doc Webb’s World’s Most Unusual Drug Store attracted customers and spectators from afar. Babe Ruth’s longest home run ever was launched from the city. William Straub had a great vision for the area’s treasured waterfront park system, and the historic Vinoy Hotel was instrumental in launching the downtown renaissance. City historian Will Michaels explores a wide swath of hidden history in one of Florida’s largest cities.
