We told you HERE that Rollins College pulled its funding for The Winter Park Institute (Website) back in May, but the organization has found a new home with local publisher Winter Park Magazine (Website).
The magazine’s publisher, Randy Noles, announced on Wednesday, July 22 that they would be adopting the organization, which will now officially be called “Winter Park Institute: A Division of Winter Park Magazine.”
Their first event will be held this October, pandemic permitting, featuring former poet laureate Billy Collins, who will read from his upcoming book, Whale Day. A date for the event has not been announced at this time.
Rollins College says the decision to cut funding was due to restricted spending during the pandemic.
