On June 23 historian and author, Dr. Frank Cassell, presented an informative talk about his new book,  “Suncoast Empire: Bertha Honore Palmer, Her Family, and the Rise of Sarasota” and then he signed copies and chatted one-on-one with attendees. There were light refreshments served, and people also toured the exhibits. 

The Friends thank Dr. Cassell for the great event. Stop by our gift shop to purchase a copy of the book all about Sarasota’s most influential woman from the past, Bertha Palmer.
