Let's Talk About It, Oklahoma!

Lets Talk About It Oklahoma

Let's Talk About It, Oklahoma! is a book discussion series made possible by a generous grant provided by the Oklahoma Humanities Council and several sponsoring agencies. A popular vote by our participants selects our theme for each Spring and Fall, with one book featured each month that the program runs. Read the book and join us for an enlightening presentation by a local scholar with in-depth knowledge of and interest in the book, followed by an engaging discussion. Refreshments are provided.

Stop by the Library to pick up a copy of the book today!
