Friends of the Key West Library 2021 Virtual Lecture Series

The second talk features writer and naturalist Susan Cerulean in conversation with Lucy Burdette.

Susan Cerulean is a writer, naturalist, and advocate based in Tallahassee, Florida. Her latest book is I Have Been Assigned the Single Bird: A Daughter’s Memoir.

“With astonishing grace, insight, and power, Susan Cerulean has written a memoir of such delicate balance and wisdom that it will forever have a hallowed place on your bookshelf. Daughter, wife, environmentalist, explorer, caretaker of humans and seashores, Cerulean offers vital truths just when we need them most.” ―  Connie May Fowler, author of The Problem with Murmur Lee

In 2015, Cerulean won a Florida Book Award for Coming to Pass: Coastal Islands in a Gulf of Change, and her nature memoir, Tracking Desire: A Journey After Swallow-tailed Kites, was named an Editors’ Choice title by Audubon magazine. She has written and edited many other books and is a founding member and former director of the Red Hills Writers Project. She currently serves as the President of the Friends of St. Vincent National Wildlife Refuge.
