The Friends of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Farm, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Historic State Park and the Matheson History Museum invite you to the museum for the premiere of the documentary "Here is Home: Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings and Cross Creek". The film was created by documentary filmmaker Sonya Doctorian and produced under a grant from the Florida Humanities Council.

The evening will include a viewing of the documentary, a discussion by the director of her methods, as well as highlights of video interviews with Cross Creek residents who share their 1930s and '40s memories of their neighbor, Mrs. Rawlings. Ann McCutchan, author of the soon-to-be released biography of Rawlings, The Life She Wished to Live: A Biography of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, author of "The Yearling,", will also be in attendance to share about her research.

Please note: this free event will be at the Matheson History Museum (not the state park) -
