Florida Humanities Council Speaker Series Kicks Off
October 29, 2018
Author Craig Pittman presents to a crowd at the Edison and Ford Winter Estates.
On October 25, the Florida Humanities Council Speaker Series kicked off with a fascinating lecture from author Craig Pittman. His book, The Scent of Scandal, chronicles the incredible-but-true history of an orchid worth $10,000 and the fallout it caused here in Florida!
Pittman’s talk captivated visitors, who also had time to socialize, shop in the Museum Store and Garden Shoppe, and enjoy refreshments surrounded by tropical gardens as the sun set on the outdoor lecture area. Horticultural staff made the evening even more interesting by providing samples of the extensive Edison Ford orchid collection and fielding questions on the unique plants from many visitors.
