This book club will be held virtually over Zoom.
In connection with our July exhibition Re/Convening: Native Arts of Oklahoma, ahha Tulsa is inviting you to participate in a book club facilitated by Kristin Gentry, one of the exhibiting artists. Participants will gather virtually to discuss a work by another Native Oklahoma artist and U.S. Poet Laureate, Joy Harjo.
Ahha will provide contactless delivery of An American Sunrise if you live within Tulsa city limits or immediately surrounding suburbs. Email email@example.com if you would like to register but live outside the delivery area.
