Only in Florida

If you are a human, you have a story to tell. This one-of-a-kind presentation, based on Dr. Neile’s public radio segment and book Only in Florida: Why Did the Manatee Cross the Road and Other True Tales, discusses true, quintessentially Florida stories and why these stories matter. A guide to identifying and sharing personal stories will be included in this engaging and educational presentation.

Caren S. Neile, Ph.D., M.F.A., has taught storytelling studies at Florida Atlantic University for 20 years. A performing storyteller, she has worked in ten states and six countries, including as a Fulbright Senior Specialist in Vienna and Jerusalem. Dr. Neile’s publications include the books Florida Lore and Only in Florida and a chapter in the Oxford Encyclopedia of American Folk and Folklife Studies. She co-hosts the Public Storyteller segment on Miami public radio WLRN.

Registration is suggested but not required to attend. Funding for this Florida Talks program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
