The AltTulsa team likes to keep tabs on Tulsa writer Michael Wallis, famous for his booming voice and his writing about Route 66, the nation's "Mother Road."
Wallis' latest road book is The Lincoln Highway, a popular history of the famed but mostly forgotten "Father Road" that once ran from New York to the Golden Gate.
Thanks to the Tulsa World, we learn that Wallis will appear on Wednesday night's The Colbert Report, a Comedy Central program featuring—you guessed it—Stephen Colbert.
Tune in tomorrow night to Cox Cable channel 61 at 10:30 to see one of Tulsa's best known authors on the tube. It should be seriously funny.
