Learn about the fight to save the Florida panther from extinction from one of the state’s best-loved storytellers. It’s not often research studies, government bureaucracy, and data are combined into an engaging story, but Mr. Pittman did so with his book, Cat Tale. For fans of the book, this is a great chance to hear directly from the author. For those who haven’t read the book, you’ll be entertained and informed, coming away with a greater understanding of the history of Florida’s state animal. Mr. Pittman will sell and sign books after his talk.
