More Than Orange Blossoms: Feisty, Fabulous Females of Florida

Mark your calendars for this Florida Talks event featuring Carrie Sue Ayvar.

Though not always in the history books, the women who helped build, form, shape, and develop the state of Florida have inspired hope and possibility. Stories of strong, courageous women like Julia Tuttle, known as the Mother of Miami, or Mary McLeod Bethune, daughter of enslaved parents who went on to become an advisor to several U.S. 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!

Carrie Sue Ayvar is an internationally celebrated storyteller, teaching artist, and Chautauqua scholar. She is also the recipient of multiple awards for service, leadership, and dedication to the art of storytelling and education. Her bilingual blend of traditional, historical, and personal tales connects the people, languages, and cultures of Florida.
