Goldens Are Here: A Reading and Discussion with author Andrew Furman

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

It’s 1961 and everything is changing in Florida. Jim Crow strains to maintain its hold, the Cold War escalates, the US space program hits its stride, and the Jewish Goldens, determined to begin a new pastoral life along Florida’s central east coast, are just trying to hold on to their small orange grove near the excitement of Cape Canaveral. In Goldens Are Here, author Andrew Furman imagines their unique struggles and dreams during a single tumultuous citrus season. Inspired by true events, Goldens Are Here offers a glimpse of the sea changes occurring in Florida and the nation in the 1960s through the prism of one family’s negotiations with the land, their neighbors, and with each other.
