Our Water, Our Florida
Join us for a conversation on water, Florida, and the future of the Sunshine State
Our Water, Our Florida is a conversation between two of Florida’s most important thinkers on Florida’s resources. Cynthia Barnett, a nominee for the National Book Award for Rain, and Dr. Jack Davis, who received a Pulitzer Prize for his book The Gulf, will read selections from their books, discuss how the humanities help us to better understand water, and engage with the audience.
