Weird Florida

September 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Weird Florida by Eliot Kleinberg

In 1998, the original Weird Florida posited that Florida was the wackiest of all. That much weirdness called for a second volume in 2006: Weird Florida II: In a State of Shock. Now, more than two decades later, who can argue otherwise? This presentation includes a whirlwind tour of 500 years of Florida history, capped with a strong argument for Florida’s transplants to become Floridians.

Eliot Kleinberg spent more than four decades as a reporter, including more than 33 years at The Palm Beach Post. In addition to covering local news, he wrote extensively about Florida and its history. He produced two history columns and more than a dozen books about the state. He also runs a blog on bad writing and how to fix it called Something Went Horribly Wrong.

Registration is suggested but not required to attend. Funding for this Florida Talks program was provided through a grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
