February 11: This Land Science Fair

by This Land


We’re celebrating the launch of This Land: Winter 2016 with an evening of science and stories, music and math. The event kicks off Thursday, February 11, at 7 p.m. at our Tulsa headquarters, 1208 S. Peoria, and includes contributor talks, live music, a science demo, and local libations.

Speakers include:
Bayard Godsave, who will discuss his story “What the Thunder Said,” about last year’s Comanche County flood;
Randall Weiss, who will read a poem about the stains and strains of vehicular maintenance;
Mitch Gilliam, who will tell us about that hour he spent in a sensory-deprivation float tank; and
James McGirk, who will share everything he knows about hunting Bigfoot. (Sasquatch himself may even make an appearance.)
This Land Editor Michael Mason will act as master of ceremonies/mathematics instructor.

Local bands Noun Verb Adjective and Daniel(s) will provide musical entertainment.

Teri and Jessi Mudge with STEMcell will provide a 3D printer demonstration and offer prints and other scientific merchandise for sale.

The event is free and open to the public. Libations will be provided courtesy our friends at COOP Aleworks.

Overflow parking is available across the street at Elm Creek Animal Hospital.
