Joan Canner Book Signing - Saturday, March 1st
Meet Joan Saturday, March 1st from 1pm - 3pm.

Joan Canner is an “almost native” Floridian, having moved to Miami as a child in 1945. She received a public school education K-12 in Dade County schools and, after her freshman year at the University of Pittsburgh, returned to graduate with a BS in Education from the University of Miami.

After marrying and teaching first grade for five years, she retired to raise two children. After an 11 year hiatus, Joan rejoined the work force, holding professional positions at the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce, Baptist Hospital of Miami Foundation, and the American Jewish Committee.

Since retiring in 2002, she has concentrated on writing, quilting, raising orchids and traveling with Gary Canner, her husband of 48 years. They are the devoted grandparents of one granddaughter and five grandsons.
