To all Alafia River Rendezvous participants:
Earlier this year on March 2, 2016 one of our own Benjamin Johnston presented the world with his first published book at a tremendously supported book signing at Cliffs Books in DeLand, Florida. Benjamin who is ten years old wrote and illustrated the book when he was six. The title is Captain Guinea Pig and the Evil Sorcerer. The story is an epic struggle between good and evil stemmed from the imagination of a six year old boy.
Although you may not recognize Benjamin’s name he is a long time Alafia River Rendezvous participant. Benjamin has attended eight out of the last ten Alafia River Rendezvous. He loves to participate in the archery competition, the climbing trees, and Burrito Bobs delicious creations. For the last two years he has sported a Mohawk hairstyle while wearing glasses. He attends the rendezvous with his mother Erin and his grandmother Gretchen. They usually camp near the climbing trees and stage. So if you see him next January say hello and ask him about his next book .
