Marcia Fine, award-winning author of seven novels, will speak about a “Sephardic Journey,” Monday, November 14th at 7 p.m. in the Flagler Room of the Old Ponce de Leon Hotel, 74 King Street at Cordova Street on the Flagler College Campus in St. Augustine. Fine’s historical fiction The Blind Eye, has been chosen by the State Library of Arizona ONEBOOKAZ, a celebration of quality literature.  The event is sponsored by the St. Augustine Jewish Historical Society as part of the quest to understand the behaviors of Converso Jews in hiding during the Spanish Inqusition. Conversos are thought to have been present in colonial St. Augustine. The program is free, all are welcome, no advance arrangements are necessary. Please call (904) 829-6481 for best directions.
