Let’s Talk About It Oklahoma book discussions are starting at the library. To go with the theme of the Smithsonian Exhibit, this year’s theme is ‘Working to Survive: Surviving to Work’. Our first discussion will be August 8th at 5:30 pm. Our first book on this year’s list is ‘The Jungle’ by Upton Sinclair. The book depicts working class poverty, the lack of social supports, harsh and unpleasant living and working conditions, and a hopelessness among many workers. These elements are contrasted with the deeply rooted corruption of people in power.

Discussions for Let’s Talk About It begin at 5:30 p.m.
