The University Club of Albany Foundation, Inc. is presenting this event, and one need not be a member of the University Club to attend.

"When I was in college, I told my father I wanted to become an author,” said O’Connor. “He told me, ‘writing is a great back-up skill to have for a real job.’ He was right.” Before starting his own public relations firm specializing in book and author publicity, Jim worked in corporate communications for a number of Fortune 500 corporations. He is a graduate of Loyola University of Chicago. He and his wife live in Lake Forest, Illinois.
Another Man’s Treasure is his second book. His first book, CUSS CONTROL: The Complete Book on How to Curb Your Cursing, was a media sensation.
The University Club Foundation, a 501c3 corporation, was formed to recognize and maintain the unique historic and architectural significance of the University Club building and property, its historic neighborhood and the city of Albany, where it has been located since its inception in 1901.
