Event Friday, October 26th Celebrates OK Women

A Full Circle Centennial Celebration Honoring 'Voices from the Heartland' Friday, October 26 at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

Join us for a book signing and reception in honor of this thought provoking collection of essays on life and living featuring fifty remarkable Oklahoma women. We will have the editors on hand, many contributors, as well as wine and cheese for this very special occasion.

From former Cherokee principal chief Wilma Mankiller, First Lady Kim Henry, novelist Billie Letts, and prima ballerina Maria Tallchief, to OU basketball coach Sherri Coale, the authors share their personal reflections on finding balance as they look back on defining moments in their lives, mull over what they wish they had learned sooner, and convey the wisdom they've unearthed on their journeys thus far.Other contributors include Carolyn Hart, Jean Gumerson, Betty Price, Pam Fleischaker, Jane Jayroe, Anita May and Jean Richardson, all Oklahoma City residents.

Voices from the Heartland is a celebration of women's contributions to Oklahoma's recent past. It records defining moments in women's lives whether surviving the Oklahoma City bombing or surviving abuse and represents a wide range of professions, lifestyles, and backgrounds to show how extraordinary lives have grown from the seeds of ordinary girlhoods. This is an important event...and will be great fun...join us Friday at 6:30 p.m.For a complete list of future events, click here to go to the Full Circle website.
