Book release: Free Rose Light by Mary O'Connor


Free Rose Light is the wide-ranging story of the people and community of South Street Ministries, in Akron, Ohio, told in the style of the ministry—improvisational, risky, and present. As much as this is the story of South Street through O’Connor’s experience of the organization, it is also an invitation to the reader by example. T

Mary O’Connor is a graduate of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, and received a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. She was a Peace Corps volunteer in North Macedonia. Free Rose Light was pummeled and shaped into existence through the Northeast Ohio Master of Fine Arts program at The University of Akron.
