Betty Smith Ridge, will be the guest speaker.
Ridge worked as a journalist in northeastern Oklahoma for 35 years, covering government, politics, crime and courts, writing features, and enjoying the variety of people she met in this historic area. Her writing earned numerous awards from the Associated Press, Oklahoma Press Association, Gannett News Service, Oklahoma Education Association and the Oklahoma Department of Tourism and Recreation. More important than winning awards to her was providing accurate coverage of the issues facing northeastern Oklahomans, and informing them about some of the interesting people, places and events in the area. A native of Missouri, she and her husband now live in the Ozarks.
Her latest book, Deadlines is available at https://www.amazon.com/Deadlines-Betty-Smith-Ridge/dp/099604020X. Her Facebook page, "Deadlines" reflects her continued interest in Northeast Oklahoma. https://www.facebook.com/bettysmithridgeauthorstoryteller/
