Head to the Ximenez-Fatio House Garden on Friday, May 13, 2022 from 4:00pm-5:00pm for The Florida Storytelling Troupe Event.

Listen to “Florida Stories”, the stories of three influential Floridians told by members of the Florida Storytelling Troupe – David Fussell, Kathy Kniery and Debra Weller.

Mr. Fussell and Ms. Kniery will portray Governor William DuVal and his wife, Nancy Hynes Duval.  Appointed in 1821, Governor DuVal was the first territorial governor of Florida. Under his administration, Florida became a part of the United States. He established governmental and court systems as well as dealing with the local Indian tribes to preserve the peace. His wife, Nancy, was instrumental in establishing “society” in Tallahassee and raised a large family in this new territory.

Debra Weller will relate the story of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, legendary author and society figure in Florida during the 1930s and ’40s. Her stories of Cross Creek, Florida are still loved by many readers throughout the world.

The event is free and part of the line-up of the Romanza Festivale.
