“Once Upon a Time in Florida:” Book Tour, Panel Three: We Were Strangers Here Ourselves, Panel Three
February 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join Florida Humanities and Broward County Library to celebrate the release of Once Upon a Time in Florida: Stories of Life in the Land of Promises. The new book marks Florida Humanities’ 50th anniversary with a collection of 50 timeless stories from FORUM, the award-winning magazine of Florida Humanities. As part of a statewide book tour, Jacki Levine, the anthology’s editor, reunites with scholars and writers whose stories were selected to appear in this richly-illustrated coffee table book. As part of the 5th annual “Tell Your Story. It’s Your Write,” this panel discussion will explore the stories of those who immigrated, relocated, and wintered in Florida. Panelists will discuss how writers use storytelling to explore the vast experiences of those who call Florida home.
This program is co-sponsored by the Broward County Library and Florida Humanities. Marketing funding support for Florida Humanities, Florida Humanities Center for the Book’s Anthology Book Tour are provided through an Institute of Museum and Library Services National Book Festival award to the Friends of the State Library and Archives of Florida Inc. Funding for the book tour was provided with funds from 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.
