Museum of THE OUTSIDERS

Did you read The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton when you were in school?  If you enjoyed the novel, you might want to plan a future visit to 731 N. St Louis, Tulsa, Oklahoma.  The museum will be housed in the bungalow used for the home of the Curtis brothers — Darry, Sodapop and Ponyboy — in the 1983 Francis Ford Coppola movie based on the book. 

Danny O’Connor, a member of the 1990s hip-hop group House of Pain, purchased the house and wants to turn it into a museum for the novel which is 50 years old this year.  O’Connor is searching for artifacts to include in the museum.  He has started a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/theoutsidershouse/) and a Twitter account (https://twitter.com/outsidershouse?lang=en).
