February 26, 2024, 7:00 pm (Good Day Sunshine State: How the Beatles Rocked Florida) You know all the songs and all the words! Learn how Florida helped shape the revolution!

Bob Kealing has chronicled the Beatles’ travels through the potboiler that was 1964 Florida. Join us as Kealing explores Good Day Sunshine State – the musical and cultural impact of The Beatles on Florida, an important part of the revolution that helped make the “Fab Four” a worldwide phenomenon, set against the historical stage for the band’s arrival; a nation dazed after the assassination of John F. Kennedy and on the precipice of the Vietnam War; a heavily segregated, conservative South; and in Florida, events that included the Cuban Missile Crisis and the arrest and imprisonment of Martin Luther King Jr. in St. Augustine.

March 25, 2024, 7:00 pm (Zoom)

Betty Jean Steinshouer will focus on two of her “Scribbling Women in Florida” Marjory Stoneman Douglas and
Rachel Carson. Because of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring, we still have flora and fauna that would have been lost to DDT
and other poisons in the environment back in the 1960s. Because of The Everglades: River of Grass, by Marjory
Stoneman Douglas, we still have the only Everglades in the world.
