Lunch & Learn – Gators, Glitz, and Gatsby: Florida’s Roaring 1920s

Friday, April 5, 2024, noon – 1 p.m.

Discover a world where palm trees swayed to the rhythm of jazz, flappers danced like there was no tomorrow, and bootlegging was the country’s worst kept secret. This month we’ll take a romp through an era that may be described as full of sunshine and shenanigans, as we discuss the 1920s Florida land boom, Gatsby at the Beacham, and more.
