Much Ado About Books 2005: Writing History
James Crooks, S.V. Date, and Wayne Wood

From the 2005 Much Ado About Books festival in Jacksonville, Florida, a panel discussion on writing about history. Panelists include James Crooks, author of "Jacksonville: The Consolidation Story"; S.V. Date, author of "Quiet Passion: A Biography of Bob Graham"; and Wayne Wood, author of "Jacksonville Family Album: 150 Years of the Art of Photograph." All three authors are long-time Florida residents and they discuss the different ways they each write about history. S.V. Date's biography of former United States Senator Bob Graham sprang from Mr. Date's post as a Florida newspaper reporter covering local politics. Current Jacksonville Human Rights Commission Chairman James Crooks began his book after experiencing Jacksonville during the 1960s and 70s. Mr. Wood talks about his approach to covering history in his book via hundreds of photographs submitted by the citizens of his community.

James Crooks is a former professor at the University of North Florida and currently chairs the Human Rights Commission in Jacksonville, Florida. Mr. Crooks is also the author of "Jacksonville after the Fire, 1901-1919." S.V. Date covers politics for the Palm Beach Post and is the author of numerous books including "Smokeout" and "Final Orbit." Wayne Wood is an optometrist by training as well as a preservationist and author. He is the author of "The Jacksonville Family Album" and the editor of "The Architecture of Henry John Klutho."
