 “The State You’re In: Florida Men, Florida Women, and other Wildlife”

Location:  Branscomb Auditorium, Robert Davis Performing Arts Center

In the opening lecture of this year’s Lecture series, Craig Pittman, award-winning reporter for the Tampa Bay Times and most recently the Florida Phoenix provides a humorous and sobering look at the politics and culture of his native state.  For more than thirty years Pittman has covered the wildest stories Florida has to offer, and will share many of them with the FSC community and our friends.  With a keen eye for history and the environment, Pittman will describe some of Florida’s oddest wildlife as well as its quirkiest people.  Pittman is a New York Times best-selling author and a four-time winner of the Waldo Proffitt Award for Distinguished Environmental Journalism in Florida.  He is the author of six books, including Paving Paradise, Manatee Insanity, Cat Tale: The Wild Weird Battle to Save the Florida Panther, Oh Florida! How America’s Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country and, most recently, The State You’re In.
