Event Details

For Willa Cather and Leslie Marmon Silko, it is a place of spirituality and revival; for Cormac McCarthy and Zane Gray, a place of lawless violence; for Denis Johnson and Tea Obreht, a microcosm of the American condition. This presentation will explore the state's literary history and influence, from literary and genre fiction to poetry, with plenty of suggestions for your TBR pile.
