Florida’s 3 Marjories: Marjorie Carr, Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings

Friday, June 21, 2019

The Modernism Museum Mount Dora presents our next Dine & Learn: Florida’s 3 Marjories: Marjorie Carr, Marjory Stoneman Douglas and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings featuring award-winning writer and historian Leslie Kemp Poole on Friday, June 21st, 2019 at 12:30 PM (luncheon) and 6:30 PM (dinner). The event will take place at 1921 Mount Dora. The cost is $35 for a three-course, prix-fixe menu. Join the Modernism Museum as we study Florida's 3 Marjories. All three women established a legacy of ecological stewardship in Florida. Marjorie Carr created the Florida Defenders of the Environment and organized a movement that stopped the Cross Florida Barge Canal. Marjory Stoneman Douglas is notable for her work establishing the Everglades National Park. Rawlings, who wrote “The Yearling” in 1938, was inspired by her home, which was later restored and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Please call the Modernism Museum at (352) 385-0034 to reserve your spot.
