†Mrs. Baskin in St. Augustine

Join us for an event in St. Augustine on February 1 at 6 p.m. at Lightner Museum.† The presentation by Barbara Wingo, President of the Friends of the Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Farm, will explore Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings’ time and experiences in St. Augustine and Crescent Beach.

Marjorie bought her cottage in Crescent Beach in 1939, spending time in that locale in addition to Cross Creek.† In 1942, she married Norton Baskin who owned and managed the Castle Warden Hotel in St. Augustine.† These and the years that followed in St. Augustine and Crescent Beach were the years of Cross Creek, Cross Creek Cookery,†the Zelma Cason lawsuit, World War II, and The Sojourner.† We will explore themes of Marjorie’s personal and professional life in these venues.

The program is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Friends of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Farm and the Lightner Museum.
