More Than Orange Blossoms: Feisty, Fabulous Females of Florida

March 16, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

More Than Orange Blossoms: Feisty, Fabulous Females of Florida

Though not always in the history books, the women who helped build, form, shape, and develop the state have inspired hope and possibility. Stories of strong, courageous women like Julia Tuttle, known as the Mother of Miami, or Mary McCleod Bethune, daughter of enslaved parents who went on to become an advisor to several US presidents, and other brave women who influenced and impacted their communities, Florida, and the nation. Discover and rediscover some of the women who grew and shaped the state! The event is free to attend but registration is required as seating is limited. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Parking onsite is unavailable.

An internationally celebrated storyteller, teaching artist, and Chautauqua scholar, Carrie Sue Ayvar is the recipient of multiple awards for service, leadership, and her dedication to the art of storytelling and education. Her bilingual blend of traditional, historical, and personal tales connect the people, languages, and cultures of Florida.

This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Friends of the Library of St. Johns County. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
