Public Library of Enid & Garfield County will host a scholar-led book discussion series late this summer and this fall.
The theme for the library’s Let’s Talk About It Oklahoma series is The Oklahoma Experience: Re-Visions. Classes will meet July 18 with discussion of “Pushing the Bear,” led by scholar Harbour Winn; Aug. 8 with “Fire in Beulah,” led by Laura Arata; Aug. 29 with “Red Dirt: Growing Up Okie,” led by scholar Karen Neurohr; Sept. 19 with “Shell Shaker,” led by scholar Roxie James; and Oct. 10 with “The Honk and Holler Opening Soon,” led by scholar Dawn Allen. All books are available for checkout a month prior to discussion.
“This series offers readers a chance to expand our knowledge through books about diverse Oklahoma experiences and journeys,” said Neurohr, scholar and library professor at Oklahoma State University. “As we explore these experiences, we have a tendency to reconsider our own experiences with new perspectives.”
All classes start at 6:30 p.m. in the Great Plains Room of the library, located at 120 W. Maine. They are free and open to the public. The event is made possible by a grant from Oklahoma Humanities with funding from the Inasmuch Foundation and Kirkpatrick Family Fund.
