Celebrate Oklahoma Day

This most wonderful event held at the Jenks Riverwalk on Saturday, November 16th, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM was a “game-changer” in that my book, El Paso Sunrise, a Novel by Louis Bodnar received statewide Oklahoma publicity and attention to become an Oklahoma Bestseller as well!  I was the keynote speaker to launch this event and we had a sale/signing booth at that event, during that time!

This event is sponsored by KJRH – TV Channel 2, Tulsa and they ran this segment all week on their noon news telecast. This is the link to that segment for your information:  https://youtu.be/6DvRdUWCBZw  


Celebrate Oklahoma was free and open to the public, and a large Riverwalk crowd attended this really fun event and came by on Saturday and help “Celebrate Oklahoma” and get a signed and autographed copy of El Paso Sunrise.

I was able to meet Tom Holiday, Producer KJRN, and Karen Larson, News Anchor. I also had the pleasure of meeting the legendary meteorologist, Mike Collier. Overall, we had a great weekend at the Celebrate Oklahoma Event.
