Let's Talk About It Book Series

Meet people who share a love of reading at Gathering Place with "Let's Talk About It" – a free, dynamic book club organized by Oklahoma Humanities

"Being Ethnic, Becoming American: Struggles, Successes, and Symbols" will explore the rewards, obstacles, and importance of understanding complex identities and other cultures through books.  Join us for one session or the entire series as expert scholars open each book discussion with an analysis of the text, its recurring themes, revelations about the author’s life, and historical context.
