Literary Lions Book Club: Heart of Palm by Laura Lee Smith
Saturday, December 14 @ 10:30am
Utina, Florida, is a small, down-at-the-heels, southern town. Once enlivened by the trade in Palm Sunday palms and moonshine, Utina hasn't seen economic growth in decades, and no family is more emblematic of the local reality than the Bravos. Deserted by the patriarch years ago, the Bravos are held together in equal measure by love, unspoken blame, and tenuously brokered truces. Little do any of them know that Utina is about to meet the tide of development that has already engulfed the rest of Northeast Florida.
