Program Description:

Oh, Florida! That name. That combination of sounds. Three simple syllables, and yet packing so many mixed messages. To some people, it’s a paradise. To others, it’s a punchline. As author and journalist Craig Pittman shows in his New York Times best-selling book Oh, Florida! How America’s Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country, it’s both of these. He recounts some of the wilder stories from Florida’s history and culture, but also shows how Florida has affected life throughout the United States. Admission: Members $5, Non-Members $10
