Join BookSmart Tulsa and Magic City Books for a very special conversation and book signing with music legend, Wanda Jackson!
In Every Night is Saturday Night, Wanda tells her own story of getting discovered by Country Music Hall of Famer Hank Thompson; shy she refused to return to The Grand Ole Opry for more than fifty years; the challenges she and her integrated band, The Party Timers, faced in the early 1960s; finding the love of her life; her recent work with rock luminaries Jack White and Joan Jett; and how her deep faith has sustained her over more than seven decades of rocking, shocking, and thrilling audiences around the globe.
Don't miss Georgia Hunter, one of the breakout debut authors of the past year
Inspired by the incredible true story of one Jewish family separated at the start of World War II, determined to survive—and to reunite—We Were the Lucky Ones is a sweeping novel spanning six years and five continents and a tribute to the triumph of hope and love against all odds.
Hunter will speak Tuesday, January 23rd, 7:00pm, at Magic City Book (221 E Archer).
Our relationship with the earth is an old preoccupation. We are required to let the fields lie fallow every seven years, protect fruit trees in times of war, and reapportion the land during the Jubilee. Those are the bedrock principle of sustainability and stewardship. But the degradation of the created world now threatens our fundamental well-being. The symptoms are climate change, extinction, rising sea levels, depletion of natural resources, and storms of unusual force. We face the real possibility of environmental collapse.
Congregation B’nai Emunah (1719 S Owasso Ave) will join Magic City Books and Booksmart Tulsa to address these issues in a special appearance by New Yorker writer and author David Owen (Where the Water Goes) on the evening of January 31, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
Owen will travel to Tulsa to speak about The World in Peril in a wide-ranging conversation with Jeff Martin.
