Oklahoma City University’s next free book discussion series, called “Let’s Talk About It,” will focus on crime novels based in Oklahoma.

The first book, Donis Casey’s “The Old Buzzard Had It Coming,” will be the topic at the series’ first meeting at 7 p.m. Sept. 9 in room 151 of the Walker Center for Arts and Sciences on the OCU campus.

The series is made possible by an Oklahoma Humanities Council grant, according to an OCU news release.

At each of the five planned sessions, a humanities scholar will deliver a presentation on the relevant book’s theme. Afterward, experienced discussion leaders will host small group conversations. All participants come together at the end for a brief wrap-up.

To register, obtain a theme brochure and borrow the reading selections, call Harbour Winn at 208-5472, email him at hwinn@okcu.edu or visit the Dulaney-Browne Library, rooms 211 or 207.

Winn, director of the Center for Interpersonal Study through Film & Literature at OCU, said in the release that the series will move beyond discussions of the story plotlines and into a cultural study of the places where the stories take place.
