"There's more truth in fiction than non-fiction." – Walter Mosley

These words proved to be an inspiration for Oklahoma City native Elizabeth Prosser. An avid reader, Ms. Prosser especially enjoys biographies, both fictional and factual. Her desire to share that interest is what motivated her to initiate a new discussion group entitled "English Queens - Fact and Fiction."

The concept of the discussion group is to compare and contrast two books, one fiction – one non-fiction, covering the lives of three English Queens: Katherine Swynford, Isabella of France and Elizabeth of York.

The discussion group will meet at Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 NW Expressway, Oklahoma City, Ok. The group is free to the public and all interested are invited to participate. The first gathering will be Thursday, June 28th at 10:30am. The Queen for the Day will be Katherine Swynford. Although not a queen, via her four illegitimate (later legitimized) children with John of Gaunt, she was the ancestor of every English monarch since Edward IV. The books are Katherine by Anya Seaton (fiction) and Mistress of the Monarchy by Alison Weir (fact). It is helpful but not necessary to have read the books in advance.

The second meeting will be Thursday, July 26th at 10:30am. The Queen for the Day will be Isabella of France. The books are The She Wolf by Maurice Druon (fiction) and She Wolves: The Women Who Ruled England Before Elizabeth (Part 4) by Helen Castor (fact).

The final meeting will be Thursday, August 23rd at 10:30am. The Queen for the Day will be Elizabeth of York. The books are The White Princess, by Philippa Gregory (fiction) and Elizabeth of York by Allison Weir (fact).

All books will be available for purchase at Full Circle Bookstore.

Please join us for what promises to be a most interesting discussion. As Carolyn Angus Bohn once said, "Truth beats fiction!"

Book Discussion: Dr. Nyla Khan!

Join us tomorrow, January 25th, in the Literature Room at 6:00pm as we invite Dr. Nyla Khan to discuss her new book Sheikh Mohammad Abdulah's Reflections On Kashmir!

About the book:

“This book would comprise a collection of his speeches, interviews, and letters to other political personages in South Asia, plus some other material and commentary. The apparatus I will use is an Introduction (5000) plus prefatory setups/abstracts (1500-2000 words) of each item. I am driven to compile and edit his speeches, interviews, and letters from the late 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s by my unquenchable desire to pursue intensive and thorough research on the political history of Kashmir through the lives of principal political actors, which is a work in progress, and, is by no means, near completion. I am also motivated by a need to challenge distorted descriptions of the sociopolitical conditions and historical context that produced Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah. My attempt is not, however, to interpret history through the subjective lens of contemporary politics. I write about phases of populist and electoral politics in Jammu and Kashmir in a particular context. At this phase in the history of the state, when large parts of the life of Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah have been obliterated, I am intellectually invested in reconstructing my subject. Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah has been venerated and glorified as much as vilified, so I attempt to write about the public life of my subject with clarity, neither idolatrously nor iconoclastically.”

About the author:

Nyla Ali Khan is Faculty at Rose State College, former Associate Professor at the University of Nebraska-Kearney, and Visiting Professor at the University of Oklahoma, USA. Dr. Khan is the author of three critically acclaimed books, including The Fiction of Nationality in an Era of Transnationalism, and the editor of a collection of essays on Kashmir. She is a native of Kashmir, and a native speaker of the Kashmir language.

Book Signing: Anne Hillerman!

Saturday, January 20th, from 3:00-5:00pm

Anne Hillerman to sign & discuss Song of the Lion

Among the most ambitious and challenging projects a writer can undertake are additions to someone else’s long running and widely respected series of mysteries.

When the series has included well-loved characters inhabiting a rich and exotic culture and the author was your father, the challenge would seem to be overwhelming.

Anne Hillerman has met that challenge with a graceful and approachable writing style that respects her father's work while enriching the reader's engagement with his characters and makes them her own.

It is a particular pleasure for the Full Circle to welcome Anne. We liked and respected her father Tony Hillerman, a native Oklahoman, and we are excited to meet her.

Join us in welcoming Anne this Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
