Hidden History of Florida
Six out of ten Floridians come from outside Florida and know little of the state’s rich history. The “Hidden History of Florida” uses dozens of stories to tell the little-known facts of Florida history. It is a fast, fun 50-minute journey through 400 years of history with lots of images all based on the book Hidden History of Florida. Jim Clark is a Senior Lecturer in the University of Central Florida History Department. He has emerged as one of Florida’s leading historians, noted for his books and research. He is the author of nine books, and the editor of a three-volume anthology of Florida Literature. This program is a partnership between Florida Humanities and the Friends of the North Indian River County Library.
Funding for this program was provided by Florida Humanities and sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Arts and Culture, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
Date/time: January 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
