Guest Speaker: Eliot Kleinberg - Florida's Amazing History and Why You Should Care
A whirlwind tour of 500 years of Florida history and how it has changed the state, for better or worse,capped with a strong argument that Florida’s biggest challenge is encouraging its transplants to become Floridians and work to solve the state’s problems.
Eliot Kleinberg is that rarest of Floridians: a native.He has spent nearly four decades as a journalist and author. Eliot has worked for more than a quarter century at the Palm Beach Post in West Palm Beach. In addition to covering local news for the Post, he also writes extensively about Florida and Floridiana. He has produced 10 books, all focusing on Florida, including Black Cloud, a 75th anniversary book on the great 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane; two Weird Florida books, and Palm Beach Past and Wicked Palm Beach, both collections of his weekly local history column in the Post that’s run continuously for a dozen years. His 10th, his first fiction effort, is Peace River, a historical novel based at the end of the Civil War.
