August 21 Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell
September 18 Consider the Lobster by David Foster Wallace
Facilitated by Kelly Brown
Is all really fair in love and war? This book club mini-series focuses on war in three times – the past, present, and future. In these three fiction titles, we will examine the mental and physical battles that are concurrently fought beyond the front lines of direct military engagement, shattering the notion that warfare is justly a matter of good versus evil.
LitWARture is held in coordination with author Phil Klay’s upcoming visit to Tulsa on October 24.
