The book launch for STORIES CENTER STAGE: A HISTORY OF STORYTELLING IN MODERN OKLAHOMA was held at the Annual Spirit of Oklahoma Storytelling Festival held this year in Bethany on the campus of Southern Nazarene University. The perfect venue to launch the book as storytellers and audiences flowed through Webster Commons. A fun turn of events was the fact that people began to purchase the book and then collect autographs of the storytellers profiled in the book. An instant collector's item! Thanks to Chester Weems for the marvelous image above.
