SPECIAL TO THE DAYTONA TIMES

As we continue to live safe and stay in place, here are more authors and their books you might want to consider reading during your COVID 19 experience.

Local author Michael A. Pyle has written several books, but the ones we want to highlight in this article are White Sugar, Brown Sugar which is a novel that talks about critical historical times in Daytona Beach and friendship and Cuban Roots reveals the connection between Daytona Beach and Cuba. Both books are written extremely well.
