Sooner Cinema

I have shed the Replicant moniker for a freshly out book called Sooner Cinema. It is a book of a group of essays on films about, set, featuring Oklahoma written by Oklahomans. I wrote an essay on the film Tulsa. Other films that are discussed are The Outsiders, The Grapes of Wrath, Oklahoma Crude, True Grit, Okie Noodling and many others. Sooner Cinema was published by a small book company out of Oklahoma City called Forty Sixth Star Press. 

There will be some upcoming events related to the book that includes free film screenings, talks by some of the writers and traditional book signings--I will be at a couple of them if you are in the area and want to come say hello. I will be at the July 15 and July 17 events. Here's the schedule.

July 11: 1pm at Hastings, Bartlesville, Okla.; book signing with editor Larry Van Meter.

I just saw the Canebrake on TV this week. Can't wait to hear what you think of it - appears very unique!
