By Jennifer Luitweiler
Book Signing & Lecture
Saturday, May 10th, 1:00 pm
In a segregated city and time, two girls forge a friendship across social and physical barriers. The pair walk together through the changing world of Tulsa during the oil boom. Grace Irons struggles to root her changing friendship with white, outspoken Mercy Williams. When the girls discover a horrible secret, they cannot ignore their differences any longer. At a moment when their friendship is threatened, the girls witness the events that set Tulsa on fire in 1921.
Will Grace and Mercy survive the seven days in May?.
Jennifer Luitwieler is the author of two books and has contributed to several essay collections. She writes on faith, family and sports for online and local publications. She reads, runs and writes from Tulsa, Ok where she and her husband are raising their three children.
Luitweiler will speak on “how Tulsa arrived at the economy that backdrops the novel, how African Americans arrived in Tulsa, and how working as a domestic bridged the gap between slavery and full human agency.”

* Springtime is upon us.
The birds celebrate her return with festive song,
and murmuring streams are softly caressed by the breezes.
Thunderstorms, those heralds of Spring, roar, casting their dark mantle over heaven,
Then they die away to silence, and the birds take up their charming songs once more.
* On the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead, the goat-herd sleeps, his faithful dog beside him.
* Led by the festive sound of rustic bagpipes, nymphs and shepherds lightly dance beneath the brilliant canopy of spring.
