Novels make up only a small part of the work of Wendell Berry, who will be in Tulsa in December to receive the 2012 Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award.
But to get Tulsa readers ready for that event, the Tulsa City-County Library will devote its final Novel Talk of the 2012 to a program titled "A Place on Earth: Readings and Responses to Wendell Berry," 7 p.m. Tuesday at Central Library, Fourth Street and Denver Avenue.
Four Tulsans will give readings from Berry's novels, poetry, stories and essays, and then offer a personal response to the work. Participants include Donna Farrior, a member of the library's Distinguished Author Award Committee; Tulsa County District Court Judge William C. Kellough; Jeff Martin, co-founder of BookSmart Tulsa and author of the book "My Dog Ate My Nobel Prize"; and Heather Oakley, founder and director on Global Gardens.
Door prizes donated by Green Acres Market in Jenks and Lost City Knits will be up for grabs, as well.
