Lunch & Learn – Finding the Fountain of Youth: The Truth Behind the Myth

Friday, December 3, noon, online

The legend persists that Ponce de León discovered Florida on his ill-fated quest to find the fountain of youth – a mysterious spring that would grant eternal life to anyone who drank from it. Rick Kilby, author of the award-winning “Finding the Fountain of Youth: Ponce de León and Florida’s Magical Waters,” will examine the origins of the myth of the fountain of youth, how it came to be attached to the Spanish explorer, and why it still affects Florida’s culture, even today. This online event is free.
