Available for Christmas, historical books on Apopka

From The Museum of the Apopkans

Yes, the original print run of “Tales of the Big Potato” by New Book Publishing sold out. Author the late Jack R. Christmas wanted the proceeds of the book to the Apopka Historical Society, but the supply was limited and visitors to the Museum of the Apopkans keep requesting the book.

By the generosity of the original publisher, the book has been placed in reprint for availability in the museum and for direct purchase online. Purchase the book at 122 East 5th Street, Apopka, FL 32703 or online at https://www.amazon.com/Tales-Big-Potato-Jack-Christmas/dp/1934194689. Online, you can buy one or a dozen at a time for delivery directly to a home or business or be shipped to a friend as a gift.
