Book Signing, Refreshments and Music 2–4 p.m.
Palm Beach County history buffs and visitors have a treat in store on Thanksgiving weekend as worldwide legend and local treasure Alexander W. Dreyfoos pays a special visit to the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County on Saturday to sign his book, “A Photographic Odyssey: Around the World with Alexander W. Dreyfoos.” To celebrate Dreyfoos’ rare public appearance, the Cultural Council will serve up live music and refreshments from 2 to 4 p.m. this Saturday.
Anyone who is interested in the history of The Palm Beaches, the arts, photography or travel will seek this opportunity to meet the man who is known as the father of Palm Beach County’s vibrant cultural landscape. A successful global business leader and pioneer in combining photography with electronics, Dreyfoos created the foundation for the Cultural Council and was the driving force behind the creation of Palm Beach County’s cultural jewel, the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
Dreyfoos is a businessman, inventor, pilot, sailor, Academy Award winner, philanthropist and champion of arts and culture to enhance and sustain strong economic and societal growth. This octogenarian modern-day Renaissance man is not slowing down. Dreyfoos spends much of his time sailing the globe, and the collection of photography in this inspiring book represents his personal photographs in 67 countries and Antarctica.
Saturday’s book signing is an ideal way to take advantage of “Small Business Saturday” in Lake Worth. Visitors can purchase the Dreyfoos book and browse the Council’s Roe Green Uniquely Palm Beach Store for additional gifts that have been created by Palm Beach County artists. Also not to be missed is the Cultural Council main gallery exhibition, “Nature Preserved,” as well as the current solo exhibitions on site.
