Stories of strong, courageous women like Julia Tuttle, known as the Mother of Miami, or Mary McCleod Bethune, daughter of enslaved parents who went on to become an advisor to several US presidents, and other brave women who influenced and impacted their communities, Florida, and the nation. Discover and rediscover some of the women who grew and shaped the state!  Join the St. Johns County Public Library System and the Woman’s Exchange of St. Augustine to hear Carrie Sue Ayvar tell the stories of amazing Florida women from the past and present.  The event is free to the public, but requires RSVP to reserve seating for the event.
