FCH Annals: Journal of the Florida Conference of Historians
The latest volume (24) of FCH Annals: Journal of the Florida Conference of Historians, has been published in digital format, and is available at no cost here. The print version will be available later this month. In addition to editing the journal, I (Michael Cole) also have an article in this volume entitled “A Spanish Entrepreneur in Early Colonial Mexico,” which examines the entrepreneurial characteristics of both Hernán Cortés, and the expedition of conquest he led. The FCH Annals is published annually by the Florida Conference of Historians, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
Recently I (Jamilla D. Brooks) partnered with Patti Brassard Jefferson to host WORDS with Wine: A Creative Weirdos Poetry Gathering at P.J. Boox. Our first event is Wednesday, June 27 at 6 pm – 9 pm. Cover is $5 and if you are sharing your WORDS then your cover is waived! Check us out on Eventbrite and Facebook: https://wordswithwinepoetry.eventbrite.com/.

WORDS with Wine encourages you to: Be Yourself! Express Yourself! Use your WORDS wisely!
