Edmond and Guthrie Go A Little Strange At Edmond Library


Oklahoma novelist Jim Thompson once said that there are a million ways to tell a story, but there is only one story to tell—things are never what they seem.

You can hear proof of that when the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, presents author David Farris on Tuesday, July 30 at 7:00p.m. when he will be on hand to lead you through a strange journey called “Edmond and Guthrie: A Little Off the Tracks.”

“The presentation should be a lot of at least semi-spooky fun,” said librarian Mary Ann Johnson. “There are lots of stories about outlaws, jail breaks, ghosts and even UFOs, and David knows all of them.  His stories are all centered in Edmond and Guthrie, and some of them are pretty bizarre, including ones of random grave sites from before statehood, and he can even talk about a mind control cult involved in murder.  Feel free to shudder.”

“Edmond and Guthrie: A Little Off the Tracks” is free and open to the public.  Call the library at 341-9282 with questions.
