James Leighton Avery, son of Cyrus Avery, graduated from Tulsa's Central High School in 1921. The caption accompanying his senior photograph reads, "Page the debater. Here we have him. In the winter he is a most polished 'city-slicker.' In the summer he changes to agriculturist on his own farm. Distinguishing trait--Oratory. Pet peeve--Spelling. Disposition--Obliging."
The Round House by Louise Erdrich
Erdrich is my favorite novelist, so it stands to reason that if she publishes a book during the year, it will be on my favorite list. In this novel, Fourteen-year-old Joe Coutz comes to understand the complexities of justice and revenge when his mother is brutally attacked and sinks into a debilitating depression.
