I have been teaching my class two or three times a year at the Norman Public Library since 2008.

Beginning February, 2012, I toured Oklahoma, teaching my class at libraries around the state.

I also taught September 25th, 2012, at Republic Bank & Trust in Norman, OK.

Following that, the class was presented at the Norman Public Library on March 26, 2013, with 126 people attending, February 12, 2014, with 168 people attending, and November 12, 2014, with 130 attendees; also January 19, 2016, with 120 attendees. These appearances were also sponsored by Republic Bank & Trust.

My tour of public libraries in the first part of 2012 was made possible with sponsorship from Friends of Libraries in Oklahoma (FOLIO). The 2012 Library Class Itinerary included:

  • February 7, Moore Public Library, Moore, OK.
