Stories of Florida—Con Sabor!

September 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Stories of Florida- Con Sabor!

Florida stories have never been the same since Ponce de Leon first arrived in 1513. Flowing seamlessly between Spanish and English, this presentation connects personal, historical, and traditional Florida tales with the history, peoples, and cultures of Florida, con un poco sabor Latino- with a bit of Latino flavor!

An internationally celebrated storyteller, teaching artist, and Chautauqua scholar, Carrie Sue Ayvar is the recipient of multiple awards for service, leadership, and dedication to the art of storytelling and education. Her bilingual blend of traditional, historical, and personal tales connects the people, languages, and cultures of Florida.

The Historical Society of Avon Park invites attendees to enjoy a buffet lunch with their community partner the Jacaranda Hotel ($20/person) served from 11 am to 2 pm before the program. Parking is available for free at the venue. This Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Historical Society of Avon Park. Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by 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. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the aforementioned entities.
