In conjunction with the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, the Flagler Museum will present a special lecture by Philip B. Kunhardt, III, author of P. T. Barnum: America's Greatest Showman. Kunhardt will discuss the genius and vision of America's unmatched impresario and entrepreneur, P.T. Barnum. A man of complex motives, a master of merchandise, and inveterate self-promoter, Barnum was a brilliant businessman who had unbelievable perseverance, and a keen understanding of what would excite people’s interest. From humble beginnings, he struggled to become a legendary entertainment mogul. A special reception and book signing with the speaker will follow the lecture.
