The Power of Books by Cindy Hulsey

A lifelong love of reading was instilled in me when I was a little girl. Maybe it’s because I associated reading with maternal love; I have vague memories of my mother holding me and reading to me, of feeling safe and valued in her arms. Whatever the reason, the magic of books cast its spell on me at an early age. Every time my mother went grocery shopping I begged for a Little Golden Book.

This past week marks the anniversary of the 1921 Tulsa Race Riot. Where can I learn more about what happened?

The Tulsa Race Riot, which began on May 31, 1921, is a chapter of our city’s history about which many people, including a lot of native Tulsans, know very little, despite the fact that it resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people and the destruction of an entire section of town. The library, through our African American Resource Center (or AARC), has compiled a list of resources about the event and the conditions that caused it. These items include a number of books, periodicals and electronic media, as well as educator kits and links to other local agencies.

Midcentury Madness by Cindy Hulsey

A couple of weeks ago after a delicious dinner at the home of good friends my husband and I settled in with the other couple, watching it rain, sipping wine, and chatting.  Eventually the conversation came around to the final episode of Mad Men. We discussed it for fifteen minutes or so, sometimes agreeing, sometimes differing over the meaning of it all.
