OH, FLORIDA! with Craig Pittman

Speaker Series: Author, Craig Pittman

Sat, May 4, 2019   |   6 PM

Oh, Florida! 

That name. That combination of sounds.
Three simple syllables, and yet packing so many mixed messages. To some people, it’s a paradise.
To others, it’s a punchline.
As author and journalist Craig Pittman shows in his New York Times best-selling book “Oh, Florida! How America’s Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country,” it’s both of these. He recounts some of the wilder stories from Florida’s history and culture, but also shows how Florida has affected life throughout the United States.

Craig Pittman is the award-winning author of “Oh, Florida!”, “The Scent of Scandal”, “Manatee Insanity”,
and co-author of “Paving Paradise.”


Support for the Speaker Series is provided by a grant from the Florida Humanities Council with funds from the Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs.

Presented by Bay Arts Alliance at the Panama City Center for the Arts.
