Southwest Book Club Meets November 13

The Southwest Book Club will meet on Tuesday, November 13, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. at the Southwest Library to discuss the book, Last Train to Paradise by Les Standiford.

Standiford describes the remarkable and challenging efforts of the ambitious entrepreneur, Henry Flagler to construct a railway that would connect Key West to the mainland. The author's writing style brings to life the design and engineering of the project, the thousands of workers who brought Flagler's vision to life, and the 1935 hurricane that destroyed the railway.

Anyone age 18 or older is welcome to attend. The book club meets monthly at the Southwest Branch Library. For more information, please call 407.835.7323 or email southwest(at)ocls.info
