An occasional series in which writers speak for themselves.
Along with being an instructor at Auburn University and the Alabama Prison Arts + Education Project, Connor Towne O’Neill is a writer with bylines in New York Magazine, the Village Voice, and other publications. Kirkus calls his debut book, Down Along with That Devil’s Bones: A Reckoning with Monuments, Memory, and the Legacy of White Supremacy, “essential reading for how we got from Appomattox to Charlottesville — and where we might go next.” O’Neill recently discussed the work with WYPL’s Stephen Usery.
