NORMAN — Author Molly Levite Griffis will sign copies of her newest novel, “Welcome to Whizbang, Ruby Trotter,” from 2 to 5 p.m. Nov. 3 at Midway Grocery, 601 W. Eufaula St.

Griffis sets “Welcome to Whizbang, Ruby Trotter” in 1964 Whizbang, Okla.

There actually was a small Osage County town called Whizbang that grew quickly, fueled by an oil boom in the 1920s, but by mid-century, it was largely abandoned.

The story involves New York hairdresser Ruby Trotter, who comes to the rural South and brings women’s liberation along with her.
