Great Event, Book Signing

Michelle Davidson Book Image
Local Daytona Beach author/artist Michelle Davidson will celebrate the release of her book, “Florida’s Haunted Hospitality,” with a book signing event at Pasta Art Gallery, 214 Charlotte St. St. Augustine, on March 29th from 5-7pm. Her book includes photographs, paintings, and stories of Florida’s most haunted inns spirits that dwell there. Her personal journey investigating the paranormal started in St. Augustine’s very own Kenwood Inn. Her experiences at the Kenwood, and investigating old town St. Augustine, inspired her to write a book. Local artist/photographer John Roppolo, shot the cover of the book.
