A book release party, storytelling event, and ‘framly’ reunion, this gathering welcomes back a group of creatives who made their home in 1970s Key West. Following the success of Rita Troxel’s story collection of the same name, the evening gives several of the contributing authors space to share their stories aloud while celebrating a golden era in Key West history. Readings will run back to back at Hugh’s View in two seatings, along with book signings and live music.
Key West in the 1960s to the 1980s was a special time, even by Key West standards. Rita Troxel captures the era’s freewheeling glow in a curated selection of stories and photographs from her book Home at the End of the World, told in the voices of the people who lived it. On November 19, a reunion event brings the stories to life with live retellings and a book-signing.
