LitWARture

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.

Meets the 3rd Wednesday of the months at 6:00 p.m.

September 18 When the Emperor was Divine by Julie Otsuka
