Florida Talks with Carrie Sue Ayvar

March 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


The Niceville Public Library invites you to celebrate Women’s History Month with Carrie Sue Ayvar’s presentation, “More Than Orange Blossoms: Feisty, Fabulous Females of Florida.” Though not always in the history books, the women who helped build, form, shape, and develop the state have inspired hope and possibility. Stories of strong, courageous women like Julia Tuttle, known as the Mother of Miami, or Mary McCleod Bethune, daughter of enslaved parents who went on to become an advisor to several US presidents, and other brave women who influenced and impacted their communities, Florida, and the nation. Discover and rediscover some of the women who grew and shaped the state! About the Speaker: Growing up surrounded by stories, Carrie Sue Ayvar learned early on the power of the oral tradition and its capacity for healing, inspiration, education, and entertainment. An award-winning Storyteller, Chautauqua Scholar and National Credentialed Teaching Artist, she has been connecting people, languages, cultures and curriculums in both English and Spanish for over forty years. She has intensely researched and shares the stories of historical figures that are compelling and exciting opportunities to “meet” some extraordinary women who impacted their communities and the history of Florida. This free Florida Talks program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and Niceville Public Library. 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, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
