Coffee and Conversation Speakers Series hosted by the Florida Humanities Council Continues

January 25, 7 p.m.: “How Florida contacted Manatee Mania”

Ever since 1893, when Florida passed its very first law protecting manatees, these ungainly marine mammals have been casting their spell over the people of this state. Once a staple of the early settlers’ diet, manatees are now a popular icon of Florida’s environment, featured on everything from license plates to cheesy knick-knacks.

This presentation traces the history of how manatees wound up on the endangered species list and why they remain there today, a story that features such characters as Jacques Cousteau and Jimmy Buffet.

Award-winning author and journalist Craig Pittman is a native Floridian. Born in Pensacola, he graduated from Troy State University in Alabama, where his muckraking work for the student paper prompted an agitated dean to label him “the most destructive force on campus.”

Since then he has covered a variety of newspaper beats and quite a few natural disasters, including hurricanes, wildfires and the Florida Legislature. Since 1998, he has covered environmental issues for Florida’s largest newspaper, the Tampa Bay Times, winning state and national awards.

Please call to reserve your seat today at 352.341.6428. Free coffee and cookies will be served.

Music at the Museum Concert Series

2017-2018 Music at the Museum Concert Series brings incredible performers from across the United States

One of Citrus County’s best-kept secrets is the outstanding music that is offered in the gorgeous setting of the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum.

We are excited that on Thursday, January 11 concert The Currys will perform at the Old Courthouse Heritage Museum. This independent folk trio are well-known and loved throughout the South and beyond.

Two brothers -- Jimmy and Tommy -- and cousin Galen have anchored their songs by the sort of elastic, entwined harmonies that only exist among kin. In their second record, West of Here, all three members contributed to the song writing on the album that deals with the constant search for home. “The Currys" are an must-see band!

Call 352.341.6428 to reserve your seat today. Tickets are $15, and include after-dinner refreshments.
