A Literary Wave Crashes onto Seaside, Florida

Seaside, Florida has long been a treasure trove of art, culture, and literature. And this Fall, Sundog Books is gearing up to add another sparkling gem to this collection. Our indie bookstore in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida is elated to announce an exclusive event in collaboration with Florida House on Capitol Hill, spotlighting the Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Jack Davis.

Why is this event so special to us?

Jack Davis is not just any author; he's the brilliant mind behind "The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea" (click here to purchase from Sundog Books). This narrative masterpiece doesn't just present the history, ecology, and culture of the American South but also emphasizes Seaside's profound maritime connection. Every page resonates with tales that tie communities like ours to the waters that embrace our shores.

Join the Literary Dance

While the accolades surrounding Jack Davis are well-deserved, the harmonious collaboration between Sundog Books and Florida House is also noteworthy. This synergy aims to cast a spotlight on Florida's rich literary tapestry, with each entity bringing its unique rhythm and essence to the dance.

Did you know? Sundog Books has been the heart and soul of Seaside's literary scene since 1986. And adding another feather to our cap, we've recently been honored as Southern Living’s #1 Bookstore to Visit in Florida for 2023 (click here to read Southern Living article).
