History Talks: Eliot Kleinberg on Weird Florida (I and II)

Eliot Kleinberg

Weird Florida (I and II)

Eliot Kleinberg is that rarest of Floridians: a native. Born in South Florida, he spent nearly four decades as a reporter, most of it at The Palm Beach Post. In addition to local news, he wrote extensively about Florida history, including a column, “Post Time.” In 2019, he launched “Florida Time,” which appeared in newspapers statewide. Kleinberg has written more than a dozen books on Florida, including Black Cloud on the Storm of 1928 and two Weird Florida books. He writes a Facebook blog on writing called “Something Went Horribly Wrong.” In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the hardcover release of Weird Florida, the author will entertain and educate the audience with examples of the incredible incidents in Florida history.
