Author and former Leesburg Mayor Bob Lovell, will discuss the Florida Cracker and his biography, Cracker Outlaw. A former mayor and city commissioner of Leesburg, Lovell has a passion for his native Central Florida.
Raised mostly by an eccentric grandmother and surrounded by memories of his great-grandfather, a wounded Civil War veteran, Bob grew up in a world that was more typical of 19th than 20th century. His kinfolk, were self-reliant, defiant and tenacious, as were most other Florida crackers of the time.
That background had a profound effect on Lovell, and he realized history was too important to ignore.
