This month’s book: News of the World by Paulette Jiles.
In the aftermath of the Civil War, a retired Confederate officer, who travels across Texas to share world news with local residents, agrees to transport a young captive of the Kiowa back to her people. This exquisitely rendered, morally complex, multilayered novel of historical fiction explores the boundaries of family, responsibility, honor, and trust. A feature film starring Tom Hanks was released in theaters in 2020 and is also available for streaming.
This month we are so excited to meet in person! We have selected centrally-located Alamo Placita Park for our evening get-together; we will meet in the picnic area north of 3rd Ave. Please bring a chair and/or blanket and a light snack to share with the group. Discussion led by Nancy Ives.
