The modern Chautauqua is “living history” at its finest designed to educate, enlighten, inform and entertain.
During this week through June 4, residents of Southwest Oklahoma will have the opportunity to take part in one of America’s grand traditions when Altus hosts “ The Cold War: The Early Years.”
There will be tent shows on the campus of Western Oklahoma State College each evening starting with local talent at 7 p.m. followed by the living history presentations beginning at 7:30 p.m. The workshops, which in reality are seminars with the visiting scholars, are scheduled each day at 11 a.m. at the Altus Public Library and 2 p.m. at the Museum of the Western Prairie.
This event is funded in part by a grant from the Oklahoma Humanities Council. All activities are free and open to the public. Please call the library at 580-477-2890 for a complete schedule and description of all activities or visit www.okhumanities.org or www.spl.lib.ok.us.
