The Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma book favorite for 2006 was "The Saints and Sinners of Okay County" by Dayna Dunbar. (Call number 813.6 D898s located on 2nd Floor). The story is about a 1970's wife who is expecting her fourth child and her no-good husband has just deserted her. It's all about how she survives in a small Oklahoma town.
