Stories of Florida-Con Sabor!
Our stories have never been the same since Ponce De Leon first arrived on our shores in 1513. Flowing seamlessly between Spanish and English, these personal, historical and traditional Florida tales from Carrie Sue Ayvar takes the audience on a journey into the imagination that connects the people and cultures of Florida, con un poco de sabor Latino, with a bit of Latino flavor!
This event is a complimentary program to an exciting exhibition from the Florida Museum of History on tour at the Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center. The exhibit is a potpourri of fact and fantasy that explores our enduring fascination with the alligator and the alligator’s sociological and symbolic role in Florida history. Includes artifacts such as alligator bags, shoes, and purses; cast reproductions of alligator and crocodile skulls; and a variety of other alligator souvenirs and memorabilia.
This event is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant, in partnerhsip with the Sulphur Springs Museum and Heritage Center.
Date/time: September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm
