Following the Fish: Hemingway in the Florida Keys

June 11 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm

Reef Environmental Education Foundation is presenting, Following the Fish: Hemingway in the Florida Keys seminar. This lecture is part of REEF’s monthly Fish & Friends seminar series, as well as the Blue Humanities: Community Conversations of Marine Conservation in Florida series, which brings together scholars, authors, and community members through shared human experiences in marine conservation. Dr. Cori Convertito, Curator & Historian for the Key West Art & Historical Society and the Executive Director of The Society for the History of Navy Medicine will lead the audience in this trip down memory lane. Ernest Hemingway, a famous writer in Key West throughout the 1930s, immersed himself in Florida Keys game fishing and did much to popularize it among fellow writers, readers and sportsmen. Cori will discuss Hemingway’s angling exploits and spotlight his conservation activities, an intriguing counterpoint to his well-known passion for boating big game fish. The evening will begin with a social, including a discussion of personal fish stories and attendees’ connection to Hemingway’s various pursuits.

Funding for this program is provided through Community Project Grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Reef Environmental Education Foundation.
