JoAnn Meaker's first book, Images of America: Ontario, was published by Arcadia Publications in 2007 and features over 200 pages of images from the history of the town of Ontario, New York in Wayne County. JoAnn grew up in Brooklyn and on Long Island, lived in Ontario for almost 30 years, and recently moved to Virginia. A retired teacher, she also volunteered for many years with the town of Ontario's Historical Society and was the organization's president for six years where she learned to love history, especially the years of the civil war, having organized several re-enactments at the Society's Heritage Squire Museum. While doing research for her second book, My Dear Emma, she traveled to many of the Civil War sites mentioned in the book, searched museums, libraries, spoke with town historians, and spent hours on the internet. She loves to read, research the family history, and do needle craft. Spending time with the grandchildren is a joy, and teaching them to love history is a goal.
In her workshop, JoAnn will discuss
