June 14, 2017 - Tulsa, OK - Emily Wood will be discussing and signing, It Was Magic , from 11:30 AM to 5 PM at an inside table during the 3rd DECOPOLIS BookFest at 5th and Boston on Saturday, June 17, 2017. It Was Magic, is a love story for all ages reflecting the outcomes and consequences of choices made through constant communication between spouses as the magic of true partnership in marriage, parenthood, careers, public service, and adventure nurture relationships.
“For me, It Was Magic , is an expression of grief and gratitude. Communication was always central in our lives,” said Emily. Her late husband, Phil, was Tulsa City Auditor for 21 years.
Arriving in Tulsa when Phil was transferred here in 1974 with Cities Service, Phil and Emily’s horizons expanded as careers flourished with arts and education nourishing them, politics engaging them and global and multicultural experiences enriching their lives. “They lived the American dream to the fullest,” said editor Joe Harwell. “Equally inspiring as their story, Emily is donating profit from the book to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation on behalf of one of her grandsons who is a Type 1 Diabetic.”
