Community Discussion: The Burning with Authors Tim Madigan & Hilary Beard

Join us on Sunday, June 27th at 4:00 p.m. for a multi-generational discussion about the Tulsa Race Massacre that occurred in Tulsa, Oklahoma exactly 100 years ago and yet, was hidden from the public for most of that time.

Event timing coincides with the paperback release of Madigan's groundbreaking work, The Burning: The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921, as well as the release of the Young Reader's Adaptation of the book by the same name that has been created through a partnership with Tim Madigan and award-winning collaborative author, Hilary Beard.
