Florida Humanities Council Presents Caren Neile at Largo Library

Tuesday, February 3rd at 6:00pm
Largo Public Library
Jenkins Community Wing

Doesn't it often seem like history is something that happens to other people? This engaging, highly interactive program uses real-life, old-Florida stories of adults and children, rascals and heroes as a jumping-off point for story creation that helps participants understand that they too are a vital part of living Florida history. Free tickets are available at the Largo Public Library.

"Our Stories, Ourselves" is part of the new annual event "Largo Turns a Page" which encourages members of our community to read and discuss a thought-provoking book. The book chosen for the 2015 community read is Learning to Die in Miami, an autobiography by Cuban refugee Carlos Eire who came to America in the 1960s through the Operation Pedro Pan Airlift. The Largo Public Library will host a series of programs incorporating music, dance, culture, and cuisine to promote and celebrate this year's book selection.

PGS will participate in the event by making a presentation on 15 March about Caribbean genealogy research and US naturalization. It will be at 10 am in the Local History Room of the Largo Library.
