An Oklahoma Center for the Book Fall Roundup

Happy New Year! With all of the holidays behind us—and the snow day behind us, and all of the entries in the 2019 Oklahoma Book Awards here or on their way—it’s time to give you that fall roundup of Center for the Book activities that we’ve been intending to do for the past two months.

Our Four-Year DoubleR Author Tour project closed out this fall. Read about the 2018 tour and find out how many have attended the programs since the Reading Roundup launched in 2015. (Hint: It’s a bunch!)

Yeah! We had that Oklahoma Book Festival. It was a blast and we learned a lot. Check out the important stats from this inaugural festival. (Plus, browse photos from the festival.)

In case you missed our salute to Ida Sutton Williams at the Book Festival, here it is. Ida’s daughter Laurie Williams was a major sponsor of the festival, and it was her desire to honor her mother, who dreamed that Oklahoma would have its very own book festival someday. Dreams come true.

Both The Center and its Friends support group—which makes so many of our programs possible—wish you all the best in 2019.
