Magic City Books is proud to welcome Tulsa native Russell Cobb, associate professor in Latin American studies and creative writing at the University of Alberta in celebration of his new book, The Great Oklahoma Swindle.

In The Great Oklahoma Swindle Russell Cobb tells the story of a state rich in natural resources and artistic talent, yet near the bottom in education and social welfare. Raised in Tulsa, Cobb engages Oklahomans across the boundaries of race and class to hear their troubles, anxieties, and aspirations and delves deep to understand their contradictory and often stridently independent attitudes. Interweaving memoir, social commentary, and sometimes surprising research around the themes of race, religion, and politics, Cobb presents an insightful portrait that will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about our state.

This event is free and open to the public. Copies of The Great Oklahoma Swindle are currently available at Magic City Books.
