Hey! I'm new to this site. What's this all about?

Oklahoma marked its centennial of statehood in 2007, and state readers have been holding a literary celebration! Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma is a unique opportunity for citizens to read and discuss books that explore the Oklahoma experience.

For the past few years, Oklahomans have selected one book for a statewide reading and discussion program. Citizens have used this site to learn about the six finalists each year and vote for their favorite. Our online voting booth was open each September and October to select the title for the following year.

The winning selection for 2004 was The Honk and Holler Opening Soon by Billie Letts. The Oklahoma Reads Oklahoma Book for 2005 was Walking the Choctaw Road: Stories from Red People Memory by Tim Tingle, and the 2006 selection was Dayna Dunbar's The Saints and Sinners of Okay County.
