Weeki Wachee Mermaids: Thirty Years of Underwater Photography by Lu Vickers and Bonnie Georgiadis features rare vintage photographs, postcards, and publicity shots from the spring where famous mermaids—in actuality, highly trained swimmers and divers—performed underwater.
Today, Burrow Press is featuring this excerpt of Weeki Wachee Mermaids as part of their Fantastic Floridas project. It features portions from Bonnie Georgiadis’s essay “What the Mermaid Saw,” and you can read even more about her experiences in her previous guest blog post.
We’ve joined Burrow Press in this initiative—together with other publishers, authors, and Floridians—to highlight the intersection of Florida, literature, books, and the uncategorizable.
