Oklahoma Authors

Whether you are interested in reading about Oklahoma’s State Capitol, Route 66, the Oklahoma Land Rush, or you just want to read a good novel or some good poetry, you may find what you want in the display of books by Oklahoma authors at the Al Harris Library. Oklahoma is home to many good writers of both fiction and non-fiction.

One of Oklahoma's famous writers is Ralph Ellison, the author of Invisible Man which won the National Book Award in 1953. Ellison was born in Oklahoma City. Another interesting book on the display is Main Street Was Two Blocks Long by Norene Murphey Hokett from Carnegie, Oklahoma. My Sun, My Son was written by Ottis Ballard, a former SWOSU employee.

Come check out these and other books by Oklahoma authors!
