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.

Nail’s Crossing Book Launch

Join us Wednesday, October 11th, at 6:30pm as we welcome author Kris Lackey to sign Nail’s Crossing!

This debut mystery from a fresh voice in Southwestern fiction stakes out the common ground between Tony Hillerman, Elmore Leonard, and Cormac McCarthy.In a remote corner of the Chickasaw Nation, tribal Lighthorse policeman Bill Maytubby and county deputy Hannah Bond discover the buzzard-ravaged body of Majesty Tate, a young drifter with a blank past. They comb Oklahoma’s rock prairie, river bottoms, and hard-bitten small towns for traces of her last days.Tate was seen dancing with Austin Love, a violent local meth dealer fresh out of prison. An Oklahoma City motel clerk connects her with an aspiring politician. An oil-patch roustabout and a shady itinerant preacher provide dubious leads. Ne’er-do-wells start dying off.A fluke lead propels Maytubby deep into Louisiana’s bayou country, where a Cajun shrimper puts him on the scent of a bizarre conspiracy. He and Bond reunite in the Chickasaw Nation for the eventual face-off at Nail’s Crossing.

About the Author: Kris Lackey has published stories in Missouri Review, Wisconsin Review, Cimarron Review, and other magazines. He lives in Norman, Oklahoma. Nail’s Crossing is his first novel.
