North Florida Center for Documentary Studies announces the presentation of Sudye Cauthen's new book "Florida's Bellamy Road: A Place of Remembrance" featuring photography by Barbara B. Gibbs.

Barbara B. Gibbs’ photographs, taken in the late 1980s, document remnants of rural life in north Florida before the ascendancy of agribusiness. FLORIDA’S BELLAMY ROAD: A Place of Remembrance is a companion book to SOUTHERN COMFORTS: Rooted in a Florida Place (2007). Reminiscent of the state’s first pioneer families, black and white, these are a particular people in a particular place, at a particular time.

Cauthen's "Southern Comforts: Rooted in a Florida Place" won a Florida Book Award for Florida Nonfiction and appears on the Just Read, Florida reading list.

Graciously hosted by the Friends of the Alachua Library.
