Flatauer descendent to read from novel Sunday


Jim Barfield, retired judge and descendant of Apalachicola’s Flatauer family, will read from his book Boxcars this Sunday, May 2, from 5 to 6 p.m. at the Majestic Jewel B&B, 73 Avenue E, Apalachicola.

Boxcars is a novel for young adults about two teens, a Jewish boy and a gypsy girl, who meet and fall in love on a boxcar bound for Auschwitz during the Holocaust.
The reading will be followed by a short concert of songs written and performed by Jim and his wife, Beverly. There is no charge, but bring a lawn chair.
