During this month’s professional development program, the Central West Coast Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association (CWC-FPRA) will present “The State You’re In: Florida Men, Florida Women and Other Wildlife” on Tuesday, Sept. 21, from 3:30– 4:30 p.m. via Zoom. The event will feature Florida native Craig Pittman, an award-winning reporter, author and Sarasota Magazine contributor.

During the presentation, Pittman will take attendees on a journey through Florida, exploring Florida men, Florida women, and all the other wildlife in between through the lens of books, media, and journalism. Pittman, who worked at the Tampa Bay Times for 31 years, is the author of six non-fiction books about Florida, including the New York Times bestseller Oh, Florida: How America's Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country and Cat Tale: The Wild Weird Battle to Save the Florida Panther, which Garden & Gun magazine named one of the 20 best books of 2020. Last year, Pittman was declared a Florida Literary Legend by the Florida Heritage Book Festival. He lives in St. Petersburg with his wife and two children.

Tickets for the program are $10 for FPRA members, $15 for guests. To register, click here.
