UPDATE! The book is now for sale at multiple locations in Zephyrhills. Check the bottom of the post for a listing!
Thanks to local famous author Madonna Jervis Wise, the Zephyrhills centennial is being commemorated with a book. The book, Images of America: Zephyrhills, is now on sale for $21.99 at local bookstores, independent retailers, and Arcadia Publishing.
Images of America: Zephyrhills is a 128-page book with colloquial anecdotes and over 200 genuine photos from Zephyrhills’ past. Those 200+ photos were chosen from over 700 Madonna collected from families, school archives, all local museum collections, and the Historical societies from West Pasco to Zephyrhills.
There is a book signing scheduled to be a part of the Founder’s Day festivities. In tribute to the centennial, the book signing will be held in the place where it all started — the Captain Jeffries House. From 4 PM to 8 PM, there will be complimentary refreshments, books for purchase, and a drawing for chances to win Zephyrhills for free.
Madonna has graciously elected to donate a percentage of the proceeds from the book to the ZHS100 committee. She hopes the book will “honor families and community and authentically depict the all-inclusive experiences of history in shaping development.”
