Tuesday, April 25, 2023 | 4:00 pm
As the twentieth century ends, so do many historic fishing traditions in Charlotte Harbor, Florida. Anthropologist and oral historian Robert Edic sets out to rescue this unique heritage from oblivion. In doing so, he gives us a glimpse of the lives of Gulf coast fisherfolk in the early part of the century.
Let’s Talk About Florida – Coming to Pass: Florida’s Coastal Islands in a Gulf of Change
Tuesday, May 16, 2023 | 4:00 pm
Coming to Pass tells the story of a little-developed necklace of northern Gulf Coast islands. Both a field guide to a beloved and impermanent Florida landscape and a call for its protection, Susan Cerulean’s memoir chronicles the uniquely beautiful coast as it once was, as it is now, and as it may be as the sea level rises.
Give back to our island community and keep our history and culture alive.
