Carol Frost’s latest book, Honeycomb, was recently honored at the Florida Heritage Awards Ceremony in Tallahassee.

The poet, writer and avid kayak fisherman - when she is not a Professor of English at Rollins College - was part of a group of talented Floridians who received this year’s accolades. They include writers Carl Hiaasen, Mark Mustian, Jose Alvarez, William Culver Hall, Jan Godown Annino, Christina Diaz Gonzalez and Margaret Ross Tolbert.

The ceremony was part of a month-long celebration from March 15 to April 15, recognizing Floridians who have made contributions to the state in historic preserva- tion, literature, folk heritage, public service, the arts and entertainment.
