Let’s Talk About It

Oklahoma: Private Investigations–The Let’s Talk About It theme at ROMP!

From July to December, 2021, the Rural Oklahoma Museum of Poetry will be the site of a Let’s Talk About It program, a book club to discuss 5 mystery and detective books set in Oklahoma. The program, sponsored by Oklahoma Humanities, brings people together to talk about books and share ideas and have meaningful conversations.

Each club meeting is on a Thursday night, starting at 6:30 p.m. Refreshments are provided.

July 29:
The Old Buzzard Had It Coming by Donis Casey [ Scholar: Kurt Lively]

August 26:
Letter from Home by Carolyn Hart [Scholar: Bill Corbett]

November 18:
Twisted Perception by Bob Avey [Scholar: Ruth Brelsford]

December 16:

Literary experts open each book discussion with a fresh analysis of the text, cultivating intrigue and curiosity.  By revealing information about the author’s life, giving historical context, and shedding light on recurring themes throughout the book, they impart a deeper understanding of the readings and lay the groundwork for an illuminating exchange of ideas within the group.
