Chosen by Jane is a memoir of a highly successful principal of two arts magnet schools from 1986-2003. First taking over the failing Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, Jane Condon quickly shepherded the program to national stature with award-winning performers and successful alumni practicing their arts all over the world.

She was then asked to build a magnet middle school of the arts. She designed the facility and developed the faculty, staff, and arts and academic programs that became LaVilla School of the Arts. Both schools continue to thrive and are considered cultural treasures in the city of Jacksonville, Florida.

Chosen by Jane follows Jane from childhood, through her idyllic teen years in the 1950's, college, and teaching for the Department of Defense Overseas Schools. Building her career through family tragedy and unconventional marriages, she develops into a leader whose vision remains clear through personal and bureaucratic challenges. Humor, tears, romance, friendship, adventure, and grace make Chosen by Jane a delight to read and a beacon of inspiration for a life well-lived.
