Let's Talk About It, Oklahoma: Piecing the Quilt, Stirring the Stew: Ethnic American Women’s Voices

The Metropolitan Library System is hosting the ‘Let’s Talk About it, Oklahoma!’ series along with the Oklahoma Humanities Council, featuring book discussions on ethnic American women’s voices.

The most recent installment of the ‘Let’s Talk About it, Oklahoma’ series, “Piecing the Quilt, Stirring the Stew” which explores ethnic American women’s voices, takes place at the Capitol Hill Library beginning Jan. 29 at 6:30 p.m. with The House on Mango Street. A discussion with a Spanish speaking moderator will be held the following day, Jan. 30 also at 6:30 p.m. at the library.

‘Let’s Talk About it, Oklahoma!’ is a series of book discussions moderated by local humanities professors. The series includes five book discussions over five months. The books include The House on Mango Street, The Joy Luck Club, A Leak in the Heart, Blanche on the Lam and Arabian Jazz.

“We are excited to host ‘Let’s Talk About it, Oklahoma’ at Capitol Hill this year. The books selected for the discussions are so captivating,” said Capitol Hill Library manager Stephanie Bates,“and they offer unique perspectives of women’s experiences through the voices of a diverse selection of authors.”
