    FLORIDA-Jeffrey Jay Foxx, a published ethnographic photographer, will be at the Florida Public Library on Saturday, March 12, at 2 p.m. He has journeyed around the world taking photos for developmental organizations such as the United Nations and for publications including Life and National Geographic. Foxx's striking and vivid images of the Mayan culture reflect his profound respect for the dignity and artistic achievements of indigenous peoples. His works have been published in books such as Living Maya, The Turquoise Trail: Native American Jewelry and Culture of the Southwest, and a children's book entitled Angela Weaves a Dream: The Story of a Young Maya Artist. Adults and teens are invited to share in Foxx's photographic adventures through a slide show and commentary by the photographer, concluding with a question and answer period. A limited number of his books will be for sale and can be autographed that afternoon. Please stop in or call the Florida Public Library at 651-7659 to register for this program.
