Book Talk with Evan P. Bennett, author of Tampa Bay: The Story of an Estuary and Its People

April 16 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Book cover of "Tampa Bay: The Story of an Estuary and Its People"

Join author Evan P. Bennett as he discusses and signs his new book “Tampa Bay: The Story of an Estuary and Its People.”


The largest open water estuary in Florida, Tampa Bay has been a flashpoint of environmental struggles and action in recent years. This book goes beneath today’s news headlines to explore how people have interacted with nature in the region throughout its long history. It uncovers deep-rooted relationships between water, land, and people and offers hope for bringing threatened coastal spaces back from the brink.


Evan P. Bennett is associate professor of history at Florida Atlantic University. He is the author of “When Tobacco Was King: Families, Farm Labor, and Federal Policy in the Piedmont.”

This event is sponsored by the Rothman Family Chair in the Humanities at the University of Florida.
