Issues

September 15, 2011

Posted 09.15.11

Our September 15th issue lets our staff–and our subscribers–come up for air.

In the last issue we unmasked Tate Brady, so this time we’re taking a softer approach with some wonderful new writing on Oklahoma.

Let’s take a deep breath and get right to it:

TOGETHER IN TULSA: John and Holly Upthegrove welcome you to twin town, by Rebekah Greiman

GOODBYE TULSA: Shawna Lewis bids a fond farewell to an almost-Mrs. Tulsa.

LIVING WITH 9/11: Bob Dumont wanders New York in the aftermath, Brian Schwartz unearths the “Frozen Zone,” and John Waldron tells us the inspiring tale of the multicultural Miss Hornet.

LOST OLINKA: Holly Wall investigates Olinka Hrdy, the enigmatic artist who inspired Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff, and the potential fate of Hrdy’s missing Riverside murals.

TIGRESS: Laurence J. Yadon takes us on a tour of the life and times of Mrs. Machine Gun, Kathryn Kelly.

IMAGINARY OKLAHOMA: Award-winning author Craig Morgan Teicher delivers a tract on the eternal happiness of whales.

POETRY:┬áDeborah J. Hunter bebops her way across the page with “Jazz on a Diamond-Needle Hi-Fi.”

HORSERACING: Natasha Ball enlightens us about the next big thing that never was.

7-11 REMEMBERED: Mark Brown escorts us down the aisles of Tulsa’s first–and long-gone–7-11.

TRUE TULSA: An unprecedented double feature on drummer Michael “Goose” Dragoo.

That, plus a creative cover design by Jeremy Luther, inspired by the work of Olinka Hrdy.
