This month’s Florida Conversations lecture takes place at the Florida Birding and Nature Festival on the H.C.C. Brandon Campus.

The History Center, in partnership with the Florida Birding and Nature Festival, invite you to enjoy an evening with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jack E. Davis.

Jack E. Davis is the author of “An Everglades Providence: Marjory Stoneman Douglas and the American Environmental Century” (2009), which won a gold medal in the Florida Book Awards. His latest book, “The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea” (2017) received the 2018 Pulitzer Prize.

Davis is a professor of history at the University of Florida, specializing in sustainability and environmental history. He grew up in the Tampa Bay area, is an alumnus of the University of South Florida St. Petersburg, and a Fellow of its distinguished Florida Studies Program. A highly engaging writer and speaker, Davis has a gift for weaving many complex threads into stories that yield intricate and beautiful patterns, which are equal parts illuminating and inspiring.
