TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Center for Poets and Writers at Oklahoma State University-Tulsa and the Oklahoma History Center are scheduled to present "Oklahoma Writers — A Literary Tableau" beginning next month.

The seven-week event begins its run March 6 and will showcase Oklahoma's literary tradition by introducing participants to some of the state's most accomplished authors.

It will feature exhibits at numerous venues— most in downtown's Brady Arts District.

One exhibit will feature Jim Thompson, the Anadarko native and author of "The Killer Inside Me." There will also be items on display, such as the leather-bound copy of "Where the Heart Is" that Oprah Winfrey had made for author Billie Letts.

The event is funded by the Kirkpatrick Foundation in Oklahoma City.
