MISS DREAMSVILLE AND THE COLLIER COUNTY WOMEN’S LITERARY SOCIETY by Amy Hill Hearth

Jackie, a “Yankee”, accepts an opportunity to host a local radio show in 1960’s Jacksonville, Florida, where she creates a late-night persona, “Miss Dreamsville”, and the whole town is trying to guess who she really is.  She also starts a controversial book club at the library that has this Southern town in an uproar.  Funny, but very touching.

I think this book's a reminder that we should engage in having a variety of friends with diverse backgrounds. Also, fitting in is not necessarily progress. It was an entertaining read.
