LET'S TALK ABOUT IT: Mysterious Fears and Ghastly Longings
Join us this fall as we explore horror fiction through a four-program series called “Let’s Talk About It Oklahoma”. In this series, we will delve into eight literary works from the horror fiction genre. Aiding our discussions will be scholars who will shed light on the works and their authors and raise questions for us to ponder and discuss. Engage in book discussions which will examine the works through the humanities, i.e. examining the readings within their historical context, literature, ethics and philosophy.
The program series is free and the books will be provided, but registration is required and seats are limited. To register, please call the Reference desk at 918-338-4169.
All four programs will be at 6:30 pm in the Library’s Upstairs Meeting Room.
Books, services, and other materials for this series are provided by Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma, a project of the Oklahoma Humanities with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Funding for this series was provided by grants from the Inasmuch Foundation and Kirkpatrick Family Fund. Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in these programs do not necessarily represent those of OH or NEH.
