The Florida State University Coastal & Marine Lab Conservation Lecture Series
COMING TO PASS:
FLORIDA'S COASTAL ISLANDS IN A GULF OF CHANGE

A Presentation by writer
SUSAN CERULEAN

Susan Cerulean will share stories and images from

her new book, Coming to Pass.  For more than three decades, Cerulean has kayaked, hiked, scalloped, fished and counted birds on and around Dog, the St. Georges, and St Vincent islands. Like most people, she didn't know how the islands had come to be, nor understand the large-scale change coming to the coast. Both a field guide to a beloved and impermanent Florida landscape and a call for its protection, this nature memoir chronicles our uniquely beautiful northern Gulf coast as it is now, as it once was, and how it may be as sea level rises.   

 

Coming to Pass is available for purchase. If you have any of Susan's books and would like them autographed, please bring them.
