Oklahoma Chautauqua: World War I
Lawton Public Library Plaza
110 SW 4th St
Phone: 918-549-7492

Come to Chautauqua in the Park: World War I, held at the Lawton Public Library Plaza, to go behind the scenes of the beginning of the Great War. Each night, a different scholar gives a presentation in character followed by a Q&A session from the audience, first in character, then as a scholar. 

During the day, there are two workshops, each led by a different scholar about a topic pertaining to either his character or some facet of the historical time frame of his character.  Workshop-goers frequently bring a brown bag lunch to enjoy during the short break between workshops.

Local musicians, as well as the winner of the student Chautauquan contest, usually entertain the audience briefly before each evening's performance.  A variety of snacks will be available for purchase.  Make an evening of it and enjoy the ambiance of a summer night under the tent while learning about a fascinating time in history on the 100 year anniversary of World War I.
