Parkland Vice Mayor Ken Cutler and Professor Frank J. Cavaioli are hosting a book signing event for “A History of Parkland, Florida”, and the public is invited to attend.

held on Sunday, August 21, at 3 p.m.. at Aston Gardens, the book signing is a chance for residents to meet the writers, receive a personal message about their copy of the book and learn more about the process of its creation.

A 300-page paperback is currently the “#1 new release” in educational history books on Amazon. The book is also available in Kindle format.

Cutler said he was very proud to be able to collaborate with history teacher and author Frank Cavaioli on a book about the town they both love.

“The history of Parkland has always been a passion of mine. I have been very involved with the Parkland Historical Society and the Parkland Friends of the Library and have written several articles on the history of the city,” he added.

Cutler explained that Professor Cavaioli approached him in 2015 with the idea of ​​writing a book together. “He had written about Pompano in the past and wanted to write another local history book, but he really didn’t have the pulse of Parkland history like me,” he added.

Cavaioili brought him a draft manuscript, and the work was begun. With the full-time job as a practicing attorney and his city commission duties, writing the book was a part-time thing, but Cutler had a bit more time to work on it during the pandemic, when he, like many other people, switched to working from home.

Cutler, who had never published a book before, said it was a fantastic experience for him and he learned a lot about the city’s history and publishing.

Professor Cavaioli, a 92-year-old resident of Aston Gardens, had lived in Parkland since 2013. He worked as a professor of history and politics at Farmingdale State University, NY. He has written several books in the past, including The History of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and Pompano Park Harness Track.

Cutler said many people, even those who live in the city, don’t know much about its history, Parkland’s agricultural roots and the struggles and battles past commissions have had while trying to maintain the quality of life in the city.

“Anyone who reads the book, whether a former or new resident, will learn something new about the history of Parkland and what makes it unique,” he added.
