The Feisty, Fabulous Females of Florida
March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Broward County Library presents an illuminating presentation from the internationally celebrated storyteller and teaching artist, Carrie Sue Ayvar as part of the Scholar Speaker Series. Though not always in the history books, the women who helped build, form, shape, and develop the state have inspired hope and possibility. Stories of strong, courageous women like Julia Tuttle, known as the Mother of Miami, or Mary McLeod Bethune, daughter of enslaved parents who went on to become an advisor to several US presidents, and other brave women who influenced and impacted their communities, Florida, and the nation.
An internationally celebrated storyteller, teaching artist, and Chautaqua 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.
Registration is suggested but not required to attend. Funding for this speaker series is provided in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Broward Public Library Foundation.
