Hamline University Creative Writing Professor Sheila O'Connor's latest novel, Evidence of V: A Novel in Fragments, Facts, and Fictions, officially launched on Oct. 26 with a presentation and signing at Moon Palace Books in Minneapolis.
At the event, O'Connor shared the very personal story of how the book came about, and discussed her writing and research process. While trying to help her mother, who had been adopted, track down her maternal grandmother, O’Connor uncovered some interesting facts about Minnesota history. Turns out her maternal grandmother had been imprisoned at the Minnesota Home School for Girls in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. It is a little known fact that in 1936 specifically, at the time of her mother’s birth, the majority of girls—including one as young as nine—were sentenced to the facility for the offense of ‘immorality,’ and, regardless of the age they entered, they weren’t released until the age of 21. O’Connor never met her maternal grandmother, but in her latest novel, she imagines what the woman might have been like, and how she ended up there.
In addition to the launch event, O'Connor will also appear at Next Chapter Booksellers in St. Paul on Sun., Nov. 3; Zenith Bookstore in Duluth, Minn., on Tues., Nov. 5, and the Hennepin County Public Library in Edina on Tues., Nov. 12. That event is previewed in the Oct. 24 issue of the MN Sun Current.
The book promotion campaign kicked off with the Twin Cities Book Fesrtival on Oct. 12, where Sheila O'COnnor was one of the presenters. Learn more about Evidence of V at SheilaOConnor.com.
