The Jaffe center selected the exhibition’s name, “Paradox Swamp: Beauty, Obsession and a Strange Green Land,” from a passage in “The Orchid Thief,” a 1998 national best seller by Susan Orlean, which is set in south Florida and steeped in culture. The exhibition helps to launch FAU’s 2007 Freshman Reading Project, which selected Orlean’s book as its first read.
