Museum of the Western Prairie to Host Author Presentation by Connie Cronley

ALTUS, Okla. — The Museum of the Western Prairie will present author Connie Cronley speaking about her book “Poke a Stick at It: Unexpected True Stories” on Tuesday, September 4, at 7 p.m.

Connie Cronley is an essayist, radio commentator and native Oklahoman. In this collection of true stories, Cronley pokes fun at everything—including herself—as she delights in the world around her. With her trademark down-home humor, Cronley takes on a range of subjects as broad as the Oklahoma prairies. No subject is off-limits as the author casts her curious eye on the story of a gangland funeral, a status report on an ex-husband, a meditation on cats and gardens, a retrospection about Native American fry bread and a thoughtful musing on old women and books.

This presentation is free and open to the public, and is hosted by the Western Trail Historical Society. The Museum of the Western Prairie is located at 1100 Memorial Drive in Altus. For more information, please call 580-482-1044.
