Lecture: RAIN: A history for stormy times

Time: 10:00 am til 12:00 pm

Location: Cedar Key Community Center, 809 6th St, 32625 Cedar Key, FL

Description: Florida Humanities Speaker Series: “RAIN: A history for stormy times" presented By Cynthia Barnett

An engaging natural and cultural tour of RAIN, from its key roles in civilization, religion, and art; to the peculiar history of the world’s first raincoat; to the rain obsessions of our “Founding Forecaster,” Thomas Jefferson – all building to the uncharted rains of climate change. We’ll also take a look at how many communities are coming to live differently with rain — as with all water, part of a new water ethic in America. Rain connects us in all sorts of ways – as profound as prayer and art, as practical as economics, as genuine as an exchange between strangers on a stormy day. Too much and not enough, rain is a shared experience, and one of the ways climate change can become a conversation rather than a confrontation.

Free admission
