Guthrie Public Library announced the next installment of the popular book discussion series Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma!. The event is made possible by a grant from the Oklahoma Humanities Council.

Guthrie LibraryLet’s Talk About It, Oklahoma! is a book discussion series that is open to everyone and focuses on a specific theme. This fall, Crime and Punishment is featured and explores the question: Is justice served by the law? For the next several months, read four authors’ responses to this complex issue. Discussions will begin with an engaging and interesting presentation by a local scholar deeply knowledgeable about the book, followed by lively group discussion. Meetings will be held on Monday evenings from 6 – 8 pm: Readings include fiction, true crime analysis, and science fiction, featuring To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee on 25 August, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote on 22 September, A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess on 27 October, and A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines on 24 November. Refreshments will be served on discussion nights. Guthrie Public Library has plenty of copies of each book- simply stop by the Library and pick up your copy today! Those who don’t have a chance to read the book are still welcome and will certainly take away something from the discussion.

“Thanks to the generosity of the Oklahoma Humanities Council, Inasmuch Foundation, and the Kirkpatrick Family Fund, we are thrilled to be able to host this dynamic and educational experience that is so valuable and beneficial to the community. Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma! is an exciting way to explore new ideas, revisit classics, and meet other people with unique insights.” said Cyndi O.
