Pinecraft: The History and Life of Sarasota’s Amish Community

February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

New College of Florida’s Humanities division hosts a lecture with JB Miller in coordination with their photographic exhibit Life in Pinecraft on view through February 24 at the Carlisle Inn. Today, Pinecraft is a unique enclave and a popular winter-time destination for Amish and conservative Mennonites in the United States. JB Miller, a Mennonite who grew up in the Pinecraft community, shares his knowledge of the history of the community and personal experience growing up in Pinecraft.

This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with New College of Florida. Support is also provided by the Mellon Foundation, Belier Auto Repair, and the Carlisle Inn.
