Oh, Florida!


Oh, Florida!: How America's Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country by Craig Pittman.

Join us for this live online presentation with Craig Pittman, a native Floridian, an award-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author. Florida is known as the Sunshine State, but lately, it has gotten the reputation of being the Punchline State. Amid all the mockery that comes with the Florida Man and Florida Woman stories, though, people forget just how important and influential Florida has been. Everything from NASCAR to Native American casinos got started here, and major events such as the Rev. Martin Luther King’s arrest in St. Augustine changed life across the country. This talk also delves into why Florida produces so much weird news.


This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks program, in partnership with the Broward Public Library Foundation.
