For Immediate Release

STILLWATER -The OSU Library will hold its annual “Oklahoma Ovation” Statehood Day event on Thursday, Nov. 14, with special guest Teresa Miller, executive director of the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers.

The event will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Peggy V. Helmerich Browsing Room, Edmon Low Library. Mary Larson, head of the Oklahoma Oral History Research Program, will interview Miller about Oklahoma authors. A question and answer session will follow.

“Teresa has interviewed many Oklahoma authors,” Larson said. “We are particularly interested in discussing with her how these authors are unique and what constitutes an Oklahoma voice.”  

Miller founded the Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers in 1994. She is the author of the novels "Remnants of Glory" and "Family Correspondence." Her latest book, "Means of Transit," is what she calls "a slightly embellished memoir." Miller is also the executive producer and host for the television program “Writing Out Loud.”

“Oklahoma Ovation” celebrates Oklahoma’s Statehood Day by highlighting research by Oklahomans and about the state. Statehood Day is officially recognized on Nov. 16 each year.

The OSU Center for Oklahoma Studies is cosponsoring this event. The center is part of a University initiative to encourage interdisciplinary work. The Library’s Oklahoma Oral History Research Program partnered with the English and history departments to create the Center for Oklahoma Studies.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact 405-744-7331 or lib-pub@okstate.edu.
