Florida Folklorist Dr. Caren Neile

May 16, 2017

From the fountain of youth to the Skunk Ape, Florida’s folklore is rich and sometimes pungent.  Few know that better than Dr. Caren Neile- a professional storyteller and the Director of the South Florida Storytelling Project.

She’ll share some of Florida’s memorable tales this week at the Marco Island Historical Society, and in advance of that performance, we’ll have a sneak preview on Gulf Coast Live.

An ardent advocate of the oral tradition, she is the 2005 National Storytelling Oracle Award winner and is currently working on her third book- all about Florida Folktales and Legends.
