Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Ponca City Native Joyce Carol Thomas honored by Writers Hall of Fame:


I recently picked up this book ("Marked by Fire") from the library, never having heard of it or its author before. I think it was out on display.

I must say, reading it for the first time, I was captivated.

Thomas seems to capture the heart of your community. She writes a very realistic, heartbreaking, yet hopeful book. The rhythm of the storytelling portions are beautiful. Both when the women recount Abby's birth, and Abby's own storytelling later on in the novel.
