“Finding the Fountain of Youth: Ponce de León and Florida’s Magical Waters”
Although Ponce de León was never looking for a “fountain of youth” when he landed on Florida’s shore in 1513, the Sunshine State continues to be associated with these magical waters. Join author Rick Kilby as he takes you through the cultural journey of Florida’s transformation into a land of rejuvenating springs. Through postcards, vintage advertisements, original photographs, and other “Ponceabilia,” Kilby shows how Florida has used its unique waters to attract tourists. Call to register.
