Eliot Kleinberg – The Best of ‘Post Time’
Eliot Kleinberg is that rarest of Floridians: a native. The son of prominent journalist Howard Kleinberg, Eliot grew up in Miami and graduated from the University of Florida. He recently retired from 30-plus years at The Palm Beach Post, where he covered local news and wrote a weekly column on local history, “ Post Time.” His history column “Florida Time” appears in newspapers statewide. Kleinberg is a member of the Florida, South Florida, and Palm Beach County historical societies, including the HSPBC!
Eliot Kleinberg will regale us with his favorite “Post Time” columns on the history of Palm Beach County from the 1,000-plus he wrote during more than two decades.
Available in the Museum Store by Eliot Kleinberg: Palm Beach Past: The Best of “Post Time”; Weird Florida; Weird Florida II; Pioneers in Paradise; Florida Fun Facts; Historical Traveler’s Guide to Florida; War in Paradise; Black Cloud; Wicked Palm Beach; Palm Beach County at 100
