November Road and The Long and Faraway Gone presentation by author Lou Berney
April 30, 7 p.m.–8:30 p.m.
The Museum of the Western Prairie will host a presentation by Oklahoma author Lou Berny on Tuesday, April 30, at 7 p.m.
Written by Lou Berney, November Road is set against the assassination of JFK. This poignant and evocative crime novel centers on a desperate cat-and-mouse chase across 1960s America—a story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities, and the hope of second chances.
Winner of the 2016 Oklahoma Book Award for Fiction, The Long and Faraway Gone tells of a crime committed in August of 1986; six employees of an Oklahoma City movie theater in are brutally murdered during an armed robbery. A month later, a teenage girl vanishes from the Oklahoma State Fair. Neither crime was ever solved. A quarter of a century later, the tragedies continue to echo through the lives of two survivors.
Lou Berney is the two-time Edgar-nominated author of November Road and The Long and Faraway Gone. He teaches in the Red Earth MFA program at Oklahoma City University.
The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
