Join us to celebrate the release of Oklahoma historian Michael Hightower’s latest book via the University of Oklahoma Press.
At War with Corruption details the life of Bill Price, the biggest corruption buster in Oklahoma history, and the cases that made his name. Price’s career in law and politics serves as a portal into the extensive history of corruption in Oklahoma. Price shatters the myth that Oklahomans have been uniquely tolerant of, and susceptible to, corruption. He blames structural flaws and inadequate legislation for tempting law-abiding citizens to heed the call of their darker angels.
Mr. Hightower and Mr. Price will both be present for this event to sign books and meet guests. The Garden Cafe will provide refreshments and light snacks.
