The Yearling: Tales about the Author Creating the Book
(Event)

Three different speakers will bring the making of the book The Yearling to life. Anne Pierce and Florence Turcotte will introduce the subject and the many people and places involved in the book's creation. Then an experienced reenactor, Betty Jean Steinshouer, will become Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings for the audience and talk about the creation process as the author. The program will be presented at the Matheson Museum where the Year of The Yearling Exhibit will still be on display. From April 2013 to April 2014, events will be held in various locations from the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park to the George A. Smathers Library at the University of Florida to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the publication of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings's classic, The Yearling. Co-sponsored by the George A.
