Mae Silver has written a popular book about the region’s unusually tough and resilient Pioneer Women called, “Too Hot To Hide: Remarkable Women of Fort Lauderdale’
A longtime member of the Fort Lauderdale Women’s Club and the Friends of the Broward County Libraries, Mae Silver is the author of nine books and many media articles. She brings 20 years of experience of writing to her new found passion for Fort Lauderdale’s history, something many say doesn’t exist. But thanks to the efforts of historians like Mae, the early days of the “Venice of Florida” are now well documented. Part of that documentation includes the stories of women of many colors, who helped shape the Fort Lauderdale that exists today. When people wonder where she gets all her information, Mae usually replies, “I am just curious and I have a big nose that is nosy. I ask questions. Most people love to talk about history, I just ask and listen.”
Sit and listen a while during Women’s History month to our speaker, Mae Silver.
