Bubble in the Sun: The Florida Boom of the 1920s

Facilitator: Ed Lamont

The 1920s in Florida was a time of incredible excess, immense wealth, and precipitous
collapse. Bubble in the Sun brings to life the forces that made and wrecked Florida during the decade: the real estate moguls Carl Fisher, George Merrick, and Addison Mizner, and the hurricane whose aftermath triggered the stock market crash. This essential account is a revelatory — and riveting — history of an era that still affects our country today.
