Michael Snyder Book Signing
December 9, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST
Big Rain Gallery will host a book signing with bestselling author Michael Snyder this Friday, Dec. 9 from 6-9 p.m. The book signing will also include other books by Michael Snyder.
Snyder’s book, “Our Osage Hills” is a selection of lost articles from a 1930’s newspaper column by the renowned Osage writer, naturalist, and historian, John Joseph Mathews. Signed only with the initials “J.J.M.,” Mathews’ column featured regularly in the Pawhuska Daily Journal-Capital during the early 1930s. Mathews’ column not only evokes the unique beauty of the Osage prairie, but also takes on urgent political issues, such as ecological conservation and Osage sovereignty.
In “Our Osage Hills,” Snyder interweaves Mathews’ writings with original essays that illuminate their relevant historical and cultural contexts. The result is an Osage-centric chronicle of the Great Depression, a time of environmental and economic crisis for the Osage Nation and country as a whole.
