BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Award-winning journalist Jeff Klinkenberg will present a free talk about “The Most Interesting Floridians I Have Known” on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 11AM-Noon at the Deerfield Beach Percy White Library, 837 E Hillsboro Blvd., Deerfield Beach, FL 33441.

Writing his way up and down Florida from Key West to Pensacola for almost 50 years has earned Klinkenberg the Florida Humanities Council prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award for Writing for 2018. His topic is Florida history and the people who make it fascinating.

Klinkenberg immersed himself in Florida history at an early age, learning its lore and meeting its folk heroes, such as Marjory Stoneman Douglas, champion of the Everglades, and its local characters. He wrote about such subjects during a journalism career that spanned nearly four decades, and he has published six books.

Klinkenberg’s talk will also explore the way Florida sports and sports personalities have helped mold our state’s character and culture.

For more information, please call the Deerfield Beach Percy White Library at 954-357-7680.
