Exhibit: Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered

Sun, June 10Sun, January 272018-06-102019-01-27 | Armstrong Auditorium14400 S. Bryant Rd, Edmond, OK 73034
“Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered” is an archaeological exhibition that will enable visitors to discover the... “Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered” is an archaeological exhibition that will enable visitors to discover the history of ancient Judah’s most famous king-prophet pairing—a story which illuminates how Jerusalem escaped annihilation at the hands of King Sennacherib’s Assyrian army at the end of the 8th century B.C. Items on display will include nearly three dozen artifacts from the time of King Hezekiah, including the recently discovered royal seal impressions of King Hezekiah and Isaiah from the Ophel excavations, royal Judean clay vessels, and weapons used during the siege of Lachish. The exhibit will also feature key Assyrian history and will include replicas of such artifacts as the famous Annals of Sennacherib Prism (aka Taylor/Jerusalem/Oriental Prism), various other Assyrian inscriptions, and the famous Assyrian wall reliefs. “The stars of the show are the Hezekiah and Isaiah bullae,” said Brad Macdonald, curator of the exhibit. “But the supporting cast – the arrow heads from Lachish, Sennacherib’s prism, the Assyrian wall reliefs – is also pretty extraordinary. We will use maps, illustrations, interactive aids, and storyboards to connect all these articles and create what we believe will be a unique and moving experience.” Discovered by archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar of Hebrew University, the clay seals, called bullae, were found only one yard apart on the Ophel at the foot of the Temple Mount. According to their inscriptions, the seals belong to King Hezekiah of Judah, who ruled in the 8th century B.C. and Isaiah, possibly “the prophet.” “This is truly a historic exhibition. Artifacts from the Assyrian siege of Jerusalem have been exhibited previously, but these exhibits have never included the seals of King Hezekiah and Isaiah,” Macdonald said. “Visitors would have to travel to London, Jerusalem, Istanbul and Chicago to see everything on display. Here we’ve brought them all together in one place.” Edmond’s Herbert W. Armstrong College assists Dr. Mazar’s Temple Mount Ophel excavations and helped uncover both the Hezekiah and Isaiah, and now has the honor of hosting the world premiere.

He will be signing copies of his book, Petra: The Addiction Chronicles, on Tuesday, August 21st starting at 6:00 pm. Petra: The Addiction Chronicles is a science fiction and fantasy saga that revolves around the Petra Star System. It is a galaxy that is being ravaged by an addictive potion called Sour Rock. This drug has exploded into an out-of-control epidemic which has shaken the foundation of the Petra Universe. Petra: The Addiction Chronicles focuses on the traumas that Sour Rock has cause to different characters and their families during this epidemic. It shines a spotlight on how substance abuse and mental illness affects the user and their family.  Mongo Allen is an author and film producer who has worked in mental health and education for over two decades. He has created strategies and methodologies which he has used to train hospitals and schools on becoming exceptional Hope Care Providers™. He trains employees to use faith as a key component in building hope in the lives of people who are suffering from mental illness, generational poverty, and at-risk conditions that keep them from being successful in life. Prior to working in mental health, Mr. Allen began his educational career at one of Oklahoma’s toughest at-risk alternative charter schools where he held the title of Principal between 2000 to 2011. During his tenure at this educational facility, Mr. Allen witnessed an epidemic of gang affiliated students being killed in gang violence or ending up in prison. This inspired Mr. Allen to create and produce the film “The List” as a resource to detour young people from the destructive lifestyle of gangs or gang-affiliated behavior.  He graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University with a bachelor degree in graphic art and from the University of Central Oklahoma with a Masters degree in education. He also has a masters degree in Education Administration." -From the Facebook event

Sam Anderson Book Signing at Best of Books

Sat, August 252018-08-25 | Best of Books1313 E Danforth Rd, Edmond, OK 73034

He will be signing copies of his book, Boom Town, on Saturday, August 25th starting at 12:00 pm. Award-winning journalist Sam Anderson's long-awaited debut is a brilliant, kaleidoscopic narrative of Oklahoma City--a great American story of civics, basketball, and destiny. Oklahoma City was born from chaos. It was founded in a bizarre but momentous "Land Run" in 1889, when thousands of people lined up along the borders of Oklahoma Territory and rushed in at noon to stake their claims. Since then, it has been a city torn between the wild energy that drives its outsized ambitions, and the forces of order that seek sustainable progress. Nowhere was this dynamic better realized than in the drama of the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team's 2012-13 season, when the Thunder's brilliant general manager, Sam Presti, ignited a firestorm by trading future superstar James Harden just days before the first game. Presti's all-in gamble on "the Process"--the patient, methodical management style that dictated the trade as the team's best hope for long-term greatness--kicked off a pivotal year in the city's history, one that would include pitched battles over urban planning, a series of cataclysmic tornadoes, and the frenzied hope that an NBA championship might finally deliver the glory of which the city had always dreamed. Boom Town announces the arrival of an exciting literary voice. Sam Anderson, former book critic for New York magazine and now a staff writer at the New York Times magazine, unfolds an idiosyncratic mix of American history, sports reporting, urban studies, gonzo memoir, and much more to tell the strange but compelling story of an American city whose unique mix of geography and history make it a fascinating microcosm of the democratic experiment. Filled with characters ranging from NBA superstars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook; to Flaming Lips oddball frontman Wayne Coyne; to legendary Great Plains meteorologist Gary England; to Stanley Draper, Oklahoma City's would-be Robert Moses; to civil rights activist Clara Luper; to the citizens and public servants who survived the notorious 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building, Boom Town offers a remarkable look at the urban tapestry woven from control and chaos, sports and civics." -From the Facebook event

She will be signing copies of her book, The Radium Girls, on Tuesday, October 9th from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. A New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestseller! "...the glowing ghosts of the radium girls haunt us still."—NPR Books The Curies’ newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War. Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these “shining girls” are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill. But the factories that once offered golden opportunities are now ignoring all claims of the gruesome side effects, and the women’s cries of corruption. And as the fatal poison of the radium takes hold, the brave shining girls find themselves embroiled in one of the biggest scandals of America’s early 20th century, and in a groundbreaking battle for workers’ rights that will echo for centuries to come. Kate Moore is the award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Radium Girls. A British writer based in London, she has published numerous Sunday Times bestsellers, writing across various genres including history, biography, true crime, gift and humour. She began her career in publishing after graduating from the University of Warwick and worked as an in-house editor at various publishing houses for over a decade, most recently as an editorial director of Penguin Random House, and now works full-time as an author, ghostwriter and book editor. She has written more than 15 books and her work has been translated into more than 12 languages." -From the Facebook event
