Edina Reads Event

Author Talk: Sheila O’Connor


Location: Fireside Room, Edina Senior Center (below the library)

Edina Community Foundation Development Officer Annie Schilling will interview local author Sheila O'Connor about her latest book, "Evidence of V: A Novel in Fragments, Facts, and Fictions." O'Connor researched the story of fifteen-year-old V, incarcerated for six years in the 1930s at a state school for an unplanned pregnancy. This practice of incarcerating teenage girls on charges of immorality was practiced all over the United States in the first half of the twentieth century. Most often, the girls, their stories, and their babies disappeared, leaving families with generations of trauma. An Edina Reads program.

Sponsors: Edina Community Foundation, Friends of the Edina Library, Edina Senior Center, Edina High School, Edina Community Education, and Edina League of Women Voters.
