Free Event: An Evening with Florida writer, naturalist and activist Susan Cerulean, March 4, 7 PM

In honor of Women’s History Month, The Sandhill Writers Retreat and Saint Leo University’s Department of Language Studies and the Arts and Department of Mathematics and Science proudly present an evening with Florida writer, naturalist and activist Susan Cerulean.

Cerulean is the author of Coming to Pass: Florida’s Coastal Islands in a Gulf of Change, which won a Gold Medal for Florida Nonfiction in 2016. Her nature memoir, Tracking Desire: A Journey after Swallow-tailed Kites was named Editors’ Choice by Audubon magazine. Her newest work, I Have Been Assigned the Single Bird: A Daughter’s Memoir, was published in summer 2020 by the University of Georgia Press. It has been shortlisted for the Sarton Award.

Cerulean edited the anthologies Between Two Rivers: Stories from the Red Hills to the Gulf; Unspoiled: Writers Speak for Florida’s Coast and The Book of the Everglades. She divides her time between Tallahassee and Indian Pass with her husband, oceanographer and climate scientist, Dr. Jeffrey Chanton.

Cerulean will read from her work and take questions on Zoom on Thursday, March 4, starting at 7 PM. Gianna Russo, Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing and director of the Sandhill Writers Retreat, and Dr. Christopher Miller, Professor of Ecology and Biology, will cohost.

I Have Been Assigned the Single Bird: A Daughter’s Memoir may be purchased from Tampa Bay’s independent bookstore Tombolo Books.  Shipping and pickup are available.  Orders may be placed by visiting the website https://tombolobooks.com/ or by calling 727-755-9456.
