Getting Personal with Rilla Askew
July 10, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Co-presented by Tulsa City-County Library.
In her first nonfiction collection, award-winning novelist Rilla Askew casts an unflinching eye on American history, both past and present. As she traverses a line between memoir and social commentary, Askew places herself—and indeed all Americans—in the role of witness to uncomfortable truths about who we are.
“Rilla Askew—a storyteller of truth and grace in all she writes, whether novel or essay—moves us to compassionately consider Oklahoma in all its faces. Oklahoma’s is a rough story of theft and coercion, of beauty and tenderness. In Most American, Askew teaches us to see with wiser eyes.”—Joy Harjo
The event is free and open to the public. Copies of Most American: Notes from a Wounded Place will be available for purchase at the event.
