Tulsa hosts a variety of different authors throughout the year, and the library can help you find out when and where they'll be speaking. Local Author Events provides information on upcoming speaking engagements by both local and visiting authors. Some are held at the library, while others are presented by outside groups such as Book Smart Tulsa, an organization devoted to promoting the literary arts in our city. Local Author Events is found in the Classes and Events tab on the homepage. Sign up to receive newsletter updates through NextReads. The newsletter includes the date, location and a description of each event, and also provides a few suggested titles written by some of the visiting authors.
