Susan Cerulean is an award-winning author, naturalist, and activist. She has written from Tallahassee to Indian Pass since 1981. She began her career as a biologist, first with Florida Defenders of the Environment and then with the Florida Game and Freshwater Fish Commission (now FWC). Between 2004 and 2011, she directed the Red Hills Writers Project and has worked as a freelance nature writer for many years.
Her passion and concern for Florida’s native wildlife and impending climate change is fueled by her deep immersion and connection with St. Vincent’s National Wildlife Refuge on the northern Gulf Coast.
Some of Cerulean’s award-winning books include “I Have Been Assigned the Single Bird, An Daughter’s Memoir” (2019, Received the Sarton Award from the Story Circle Network), “Coming to Pass: Florida’s Coastal Islands in a Gulf of Change” (2015, Received a Gold Medal, Non-Fiction, Florida Book Awards), and “Tracking Desire: A Journey After Swallow-Tailed Kites” (2005, Editor’s Choice Audubon Magazine).
In addition to the books mentioned above, Cerulean will have many of her books available for sale at the event including “Unspoiled: Writer’s Speak for Florida’s Coast” and “Between Two Rivers: Stories from the Red Hills to the Gulf”.
