Author Of Novel Set In Jacksonville To Share ‘Education’ At Main Library

Larry Baker

The author of a new novel set in the First Coast is speaking at the Jacksonville Public Library on Wednesday.

Larry Baker will be discussing his latest book, “The Education of Nancy Adams.” Adams is a teacher in a Jacksonville high school.

The Jacksonville Public Library’s Olga Bayer says Baker used to live in the area.

“He has several books which he has set in Northeast Florida. In this one, I think he talks about the St. Johns River quite a bit,” Bayer said.

Baker is best known for his novel, “The Flamingo Rising,” which was also set in Northeast Florida and later turned into a movie. His talk is at the Main Library on Laura Street downtown. It starts at 5:30 Wednesday evening.
