We’re Going with “Not For Children Only” for this year’s Let’s Talk About It discussion series

Let's Talk About It, OklahomaFriends of the Hobart Library with the help of the Oklahoma Humanities Council and the financial support of the Kirkpatrick Family Fund and the Inasmuch Foundation is sponsoring the series, “Not For Children Only.” All books are by Oklahoma authors. We are fortunate to have five distinguished scholars to expand our enjoyment of the books as well as enhance our discussions.

The books are available at the library. Everyone is invited to participate in the program. And as always everyone is invited to join Friends of the Library.

Not For Children Only

“There are good books which are only for adults, because their comprehension presupposes adult experiences, but there are no good books which are only for children.” –W. H. Auden, Forewords and Afterwords
All Meetings will begin at 2 pm in the Slaner Room of the Hobart Public Library. Refreshments will be served.
