7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
At The Bishop
On the second Wednesday of each month from 7 to 9 pm, we transform the Bishop Planetarium into a forum for discussions at think + drink (science), a place where you can grab a beer or a glass of wine (or a soft drink) and learn about cutting-edge science in a relaxed, informal setting. Typically our “expert du jour” gives a short presentation on the topic of the month, and then opens the floor for questions and discussion.
July 11: The W.D. Sugg Legacy: From the Hills of Tennessee to the Banks of the Manatee — One Man’s Contributions to the Two Places He Called Home
Lela Rast Hartsaw is a writer, speaker, and historic preservationist. New to the Bradenton area in 1998, one of Lela’s first favorite places to visit was the South Florida Museum. Little did she know, the Museum’s founder, Dr. W.D. Sugg, would become her paragon for civic leadership, whose legacy she strives to keep alive. Lela writes for NextGen Family Magazine and has published two children’s books on local history. She is currently working on a biography of Dr. Sugg written for children in English and in Spanish.
