Russell Cobb – In Person
April 11, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Magic City Books is proud to welcome Russell Cobb for an in person event to celebrate the paperback release of his book, The Great Oklahoma Swindle, winner of the 2021 Director’s Award in the Oklahoma Book Awards. Russell will be in conversation with Magic City Books co-founder Jeff Martin at 7:00 pm on Monday April 11 in the Algonquin Room at Magic City Books. A book signing will follow after the program.
In The Great Oklahoma Swindle Russell Cobb tells the story of a state rich in natural resources and artistic talent, yet near the bottom in education and social welfare. Raised in Tulsa, Cobb engages Oklahomans across the boundaries of race and class to hear their troubles, anxieties, and aspirations and delves deep to understand their contradictory and often stridently independent attitudes. Interweaving memoir, social commentary, and sometimes surprising research around the themes of race, religion, and politics, Cobb presents an insightful portrait that will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about the American Heartland.
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of The Great Oklahoma Swindle are available now and will be sold at the event. You can purchase a copy online at: https://magiccitybooks.square.site/product/the-great-oklahoma-swindle/725.
