‘Schindler’s’ scribe to receive award
Curling up in a cozy spot with a new book. There is just nothing like it. That expectation of a new adventure with a great author captured all the book lovers and library supporters who are members of the 2007 Peggy V. Helmerich Distinguished Author Award committee during a luncheon at Southern Hills Country Club’s Snug Harbor. The group gathered to learn more about this year’s Distinguished Author Award recipient, Thomas Keneally, author of the award-winning “Schindler’s List.” Keneally will be here Dec. 7 to accept the award during a black-tie dinner at Central Library. He will also present a free public lecture on Dec. DANNA 8. SUE The Tulsa Library ALKER Trust sponsors the anPEOPLE & PLACES nual award, which dannasue.walker gives formal tion on behalf of the Tulsa County community to internationally acclaimed authors who have written a distinguished body of work and made a major contribution to the field of literature and letters. The award consists of a $40,000 cash prize and an engraved crystal book. The 2007 committee chairwoman, Lacy Whitehead, welcomed everyone to the luncheon and TCCL CEO Linda Saferite spoke about the impact the Tulsa Library Trust has on the library system. She also thanked Peggy Helmerich, for whom the award is named, for her patronage and support. Thanks also went to Pattie Bowman, who hosted the luncheon. Mary Wheeler-Brown, award selection chairwoman, was also on the program. During a career that spans four decades, Keneally has written some 30 novels, more than a dozen nonfiction works, plus several plays and screenplays. He was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1935. He completed his education at various schools in New South Wales’ north coast before beginning theological studies for the Catholic priesthood. He abandoned this vocation in 1960 and turned to clerical work and teaching before publication of his first novel, “The Place at Whitton,”

in 1964. Since then, he has been a fulltime writer. With the publication of “Schindler’s Ark,”(the book’s original title), Keneally found himself embroiled in a controversy over whether his book was fiction or nonfiction. Although the story of Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist during World War II who saved Jews assigned to work in his factory, is historical truth, Keneally wrote the book as a novel. After deliberation, the judges deemed the work a novel and awarded it the Booker Prize. Keneally was awarded the Order of Australia in 1983 for his services to Australian literature. Among the committee members at the luncheon were Peggy Helmerich, Scott Filstrup, Mollie Williford, Mary Lou Daniel, Phyllis Dotson, Helen Jo Hardwick, Joan Hoar, Mary Shaw, Jane Hawkins, Barbara Sylvan, Jean Tate, Anne Burlingame, Larry Bartley, Jennifer Anthony, Marian Bovaird, Tulley Bowman, David Brennen, Natalie Brundred, Shelley Campbell, Sara Carlson, Diane Cariker, Anne Cleveland, Sara Dale, Laura Daniel, Josie Driskill, Ellen Duecker, Ellen Full-

Claiming is the secret of making something work or seeing it fail. We should realize how our words make things happen or help them to fail. What we think or claim with our mouths has more punch because we are always more decisive about the downside of anything than we are about our ability to do something well. Every time we agree with someone that nothing is going to save us, we set failure into motion. Depression and hopelessness are results of downside talking. But when we decide to keep quiet until we can say something positive, hope seeps back in and things begin to change for the better. Most people do not want to admit they have anything to do with their problems, but if they listen to themselves and monitor what they say, they will recognize how they set things in motion. But the good thing is they can feed good words into their plans and win hands down.
