Italy in Oklahoma

June 25, 2009

100_1498As I gear up for Salon Ada, a literary salon this week-end for writers, artists, and scholars, I wanted to include cool things for the out-of-staters from around southeastern Oklahoma.  So Lovera’s Family Grocery and Famous Meat Market in Krebs, Oklahoma, not more than 60 miles from Ada, came to mind.  They’ve been making authentic Italian Fine Foods since 1946.  The history of Krebs’ and the Italian miners that came to Indian Territory in the 19th century to work the coal mines is worth studying, especially in light of our national debate on “immigration and immigrant workers.”  For  the out-of-state- invitees [read foodies] to Salon Ada, each person will receive a gift from Lovera’s at Krebs.  (Krebs is also mentioned as one of the baseball teams to beat in my novel Miko Kings.)
