Winter Park in the 1960s," released by Arcadia Publishing in the Images of America series, is a compilation of black-and-white photographs taken by the late Nick White when he worked in the Winter Park bureau of the Orlando Sentinel-Star. The subjects include city officials, downtown businesses, children's activities, civic groups and many more. White's son, Gary White, curated the book from thousands of negatives following Nick's death in 2022. 

Gary White, born in Winter Park, is a longtime journalist and now a reporter for The Ledger newspaper in Lakeland. He is the author of a previous book, "Conservation in Florida: Its History and Heroes," published by Florida Historical Society Press.

Books will be for sale at the event.
