Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma! (LTAIO) offers more than your average book club. These programs have the added bonus of a humanities scholar to broaden discussions.
A series consists of 4-5 program sessions, each featuring a book from the chosen theme. A humanities scholar opens each session with information on the author, the context of the book, and how it relates to the theme. Participants then discuss their own thoughts on the book.
Coming and Going in Oklahoma Indian Country
This theme, created by author Joy Harjo, offers short stories, memoir, poetry, and personal essays written by contemporary native authors. These personal stories invite us to consider the ways in which indigenous peoples have continued to shape the distinctive history and culture of this land that we call Oklahoma.
