  • The Love County Library will continue Let's Talk About It, Oklahoma (LTAIO) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday with "Dust Tracks on a Road" by Zora Neale Hurston.
    Hurston is a controversial figure who addresses her readers with powerful issues such as identity, education, family, love, slavery, motherhood, activism and the double jeopardy of being black and female. Her works are currently being rediscovered after 30 years of obscurity.
    Scholar Carol Humphrey will address questions such as "Had you heard of Zora Neale Hurston before reading this book?" and "How important do you think she is an as American author?"
    Humphrey serves as professor of history at Oklahoma Baptist University in Shawnee. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, with a major in American History. She has several publications, including books on the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.
    The final book in the series will be "Blackberry Winter" by Margaret Mead on Sept. 3.
    To register for LTAIO or to ask questions, call Niki Powell, branch manager, at (580) 276-3783 or (888) 520-8098. Love County Library is located at 500 S. Highway 77 in Marietta.
