"This ain't yur typical Old Timer's festival!" Not this one, we've added some Spice to the mix! The Poteau Pioneer and Steampunk Festival is coming soon! So, for all you Steampunks out there, gear up and get your costumes and contraptions ready! For everyone else, be sure to dress the part! We want to see cowboys, outlaws, Choctaws, and Victorian's roaming about the streets of Downtown Poteau! Hosted by Historic Downtown Poteau, inc., this two day festival will feature everything from Carriage Rides to Bizare Contraptions. We're still in the planning phases of this event, but it's shaping up to be one of the biggest that we've had downtown in years! Be sure to save the date and check back frequently as we post more updates! We'll see you there!

Oklahoma Department of Libraries shared Best of Books's photo. ... See MoreSee Less

We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday May 24th from 6:00-7:30pm, author Steve Sheinkin will be at Best of Books signing copies of his book, "Undefeated: Jim Thorpe and the Carlisle Indian School Football Team". His other titles will be available for sell as well! "Undefeated" tells the story of when superstar athlete Jim Thorpe and football legend Pop Warner met in 1904 at the Carlisle Indian Industrial School in Pennsylvania, they forged one of the winningest teams in American football history. Called “the team that invented football,” they took on the best opponents of their day, defeating much more privileged schools such as Harvard and the Army in a series of breathtakingly close calls, genius plays, and bone-crushing hard work. But this is not just an underdog story. It’s an unflinching look at the persecution of Native Americans and its intersection with the beginning of one of the most beloved—and exploitative—pastimes in America, expertly told by nonfiction powerhouse Steve Sheinkin.
