  • Key West Art & Historical Society presents: A Literary History of Key West Exhibit
  • Website
  • This exhibit will concentrate on a handful of writers who have found the tranquil and accepting character of Key West a perfect place to pen their novels, tomes, plays and poems.  While the exhibition is enlightening, it is by no means comprehensive.  Instead, the aim is to present a cross-section of authors that span many genres and time periods.  In addition, the exhibit will serve as a springboard for discovering other authors and recognizing the island’s cultivation of inspired works. The mission of the KWAHS is to preserve the culture of the Florida Keys through exhibiting and displaying regional art, architecture and history for the purpose of educating the community and visiting public.
