I was asked to speak at SWOSU-Sayre’s annual Literary Festival https://newsok.com/article/5609767/swosu-sayre-fall-literary-festival-to-be-held-on-oct.-5 this last week. I found myself immersed with a great group of people who love literature as much as I do. Terry Ford and her staff put together a great day with vendors, speakers and even a pumpkin decorating contest. I even received a student anthology of writing put together by the school and handed out at the festival.
Other speakers were Bob Avey of Broken Arrow, who writes Detective Kenny Elliott series of crime fiction, and Landry Brewer, recipient of the 2018 SWOSU Bernhardt Academic Excellence Award. He has a new book about Maurice Halperin, a University of Oklahoma professor who was accused of being a communist and spy.
There was even a free lunch and lots of participation by high school and college students from Sayre and surrounding communities. It was a great time as we shared our love of literature.
I look forward to more of their festivals and thank you SWOSU-Sayre for inviting me!
(Oh, and I helped a friend with her garage sale and clearing her life this week. I try to keep you updated.)
