The Sound of the Sea: Seashells and the Fate of Oceans with Cynthia Barnett

Environmental author Cynthia Barnett in the light-filled office where she wrote The Sound of the Sea, her arm resting on the four books she has authored. The first three dealt with fresh water issues; this one “really completes the hydrologic cycle for me,” Barnett says.

Join award-winning environmental author Cynthia Barnett as she explores the long, rich, and surprisingly profound relationship between humans and seashells. With her engaging account of an aspect of nature and culture long hidden in plain sight, Barnett illuminates the beauty and wonder of seashells as well as the human ingenuity and scientific solutions they represent for our warming world. This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Marco Island Historical Society.

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, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
