2. Davis Public Library will feature Oklahoma PIs in the Let’s Talk About It Oklahoma series at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. “Oklahoma Private Investigations” is a five- book series with five scholar presentations.
This series begins and ends with somewhat classical mysteries where readers must sort through the population of a small community and select the culprit before the solution is announced. Three of the books in this series are situated in small communities in Oklahoma and two take place around the large city of Tulsa. All provide a glimpse on the character of the state.
Bill Hagen will kick off the series with “The Old Buzzard Had It Coming” by Donis Casey. Other books include: “Letter from Home” by Carolyn Hart (Sept. 20); “Capitol Offense” by William Bernhardt (Oct. 4); “Twisted Perception” by Bob Avey (Oct. 18) and “The American Café” by Sara Sue Hoklotubbe (Nov. 11).
Copies of the book are available at the library, 209 E. Benton St.
