Virtual Speaker Series – Scribbling Women in Florida by Betty Jean Steinshouer
A dozen women authors have put Florida on the map, between Reconstruction-era Harriet Beecher Stowe and Constance Fenimore Woolson, the Gilded Age’s Sarah Orne Jewett, the homesteading Laura Ingalls Wilder and her libertarian daughter, Rose Wilder Lane, environmentalists Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Rachel Carson, friends Zora Neale Hurston and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, and poets Edna St. Vincent Millay, Elizabeth Bishop, and Anne Morrrow Lindbergh. They all gravitated to the Land of Flowers, and here are the lessons they learned.
This event is funded by the Florida Humanities Florida Talks program in partnership with the Lake Wales Museum and Cultural Center.
Date/time: March 11 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Presented By:Betty Jean Steinshouer, Author/Historian/Actress
