On Wednesday, February 17th, acclaimed author and historian Miriam Rockness will be coming to Park Avenue Christian Bookstore for a book signing. Mrs. Rockness lived in Lake Wales for over 30 years before she and her husband moved to Mt. Dora a few years ago. Rockness’ research into the life of Lilias Trotter, 19th century artist and missionary, has sparked a moving docudrama called “Many Beautiful Things.” Rockness has written and contributed to many books regarding the life of Trotter, including biographies, devotionals, and even children’s books. Several of her books will be available to be signed by the author at Park Avenue Christian Bookstore from 10am-12pm on Wednesday.
