O’Connor, who grew up in Northern California, has degrees in art, art history, and American history and taught art history at the University of Florida and Santa Fe College.
She is also the author of the non-fiction book, Lost Cities of the Ancient Southeast, and she and Gary Monroe coauthored Florida’s American Heritage River: Images from the St. Johns Region.
O’Connor resides in Micanopy and currently serves as vice president of the Writers Alliance of Gainesville.
This program will be held in Meeting Room A, Fourth Floor, of the Headquarters library, 401 E. Univ. Ave., Gainesville, FL.
The Local Author Series will feature a new author each month.
