Marsha Dean Phelts joined us back in March of 2021 to chat about American Beach and her two books, An American Beach for African Americans and The American Beach Cookbook. Phelts will cover the myths of the beach -- what is the first, the most, the oldest? -- and the informational treasures unearthed there. She will also talk about the women of American Beach, including Miss Martha, Emma Morgan, Beach Lady, Annette Myers, and Hurricane Dora.

Phelts is an American Beach homeowner, a contributor to the Florida Star, and a former librarian with the Jacksonville Public Library. She will be joined in the chat by Felice Franklin of the PRIDE Book Club.
