Novel Talk: Smart Conversations for Serious Readers

Join us at Central Library on December 3 at 7:00 p.m. for the next installment of Novel Talk: Smart Conversation for Serious Readers! Novel Talk is a recurring program where we discuss real-world matters through the lens of fiction.

Using Kathleen Kent's "The Heretic's Daughter," we'll examine the misogyny, political turmoil and mass hysteria that led to the Salem Witch Trials. We'll explore the question: "How are the trials (and the prejudices that inspired them) still relevant today?"

Discussion panelists include:

  • Marc Carlson, Librarian of Special Collections at the University of Tulsa
  • Jan Wilson, Wellspring Associate Professor of History at the University of Tulsa
  • Rebecca McWilliams, Teen Associate at Hardesty Regional Library

You can register for the event here.
