  • Patrick Smith's "A Land Remembered" is, arguably, a novel all Floridians should have read at some time in their lives.
    The book chronicles the lives of the MacIveys, a pioneering Florida family, just before the Civil War.
    Smith died earlier in the year, but his son, Rick, continues to lecture on the importance of the writings and life of his father.

    The Suwannee Valley Players outdid themselves with an emotional adaptation of John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men" this weekend at the Chief Theare.

    The story is of two migrant field hands, the average-looking yet smart George and the strong but mentally challenged Lennie who both find work on a California farm during The Great Depression.

    In addition to the strong lead role of George, played by the seasoned actor Terry Wines, three young actors stood out.
