Let’s Talk About It
Since 1985, Oklahoma Humanities has strengthened communities by connecting Oklahomans through its dynamic book club program, Let’s Talk About It. Literature is a catalyst for meaningful conversations, encouraging readers to reflect on their experiences, share thoughts and ideas, consider diverse perspectives, and gain new insight.
Literary experts skillfully open each book discussion with a fresh analysis of the text, cultivating intrigue and curiosity. By revealing information about the author’s life, giving historical context, and shedding light on recurring themes throughout the book, they impart a deeper understanding of the readings and lay the groundwork for an illuminating exchange of ideas within the group.
Registration is required. Please call 405-222-6075.
